Treasure Island rehab center warns spring breakers of fentanyl-laced street drugs following string of mass overdoses in Florida

U.S. District Judge Thomas Barber today sentenced Jarvis Bernard Bowens, 35, Lehigh Acres, to 25 years in federal prison for possessing with the intent to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl and 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Bowens pled guilty on January 6, 2022.

According to court documents, in July 2021, DEA agents executed search warrants at Bowens’s residence in Lehigh Acres and at his business in Fort Myers. 

Between the locations, agents seized more than one kilogram of fentanyl, more than two-and-a-half kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, quantities of powder cocaine and crack cocaine, and two loaded firearms, all belonging to Bowens. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Florida Highway Patrol. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Simon R. Eth.
