A traffic stop in Florida led to the seizure of thousands of dollars worth of illegal drugs, including the highly-dangerous fentanyl, late Wednesday.
“Fentanyl is a deadly opioid that is killing people across the country and ruining lives,” Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said. “I am committed to taking fentanyl off the streets and putting those who sell it behind bars.”
According to investigators, at about 10:08 p.m., a CCSO deputy conducted a traffic stop on Kelvin Blanc, 22, of 91 River Drive, for driving an electric scooter the wrong way in a vehicle travel lane without lights on.
During the stop the deputy developed probable cause to search Blanc.
The deputy discovered a large assortment of controlled substances in Blanc’s backpack.
That included 152 grams of cocaine-fentanyl mixture. Blanc also had 42 pills of various illegal drugs in his backpack.
Blanc was arrested and taken to the Naples Jail Center. He is facing 11 felony charges – two for trafficking fentanyl and cocaine, nine for possession of other drugs.
