PCSO: FENTANYL DEALER DEALT IT, K9 SMELT IT

 

On Tuesday, Deputy Trent Massey was travelling north on South Highway 1247, when he observed a black Lincoln crossing the center line.  Deputy Massey conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle and encountered the driver, Justin Wilson, age 35, of Somerset.  Deputy Massey conducted some field sobriety tests on Wilson.

 

Deputy Massey deployed his K9, Leo, around the vehicle to conduct a free air sniff of the vehicle.  Following the free air sniff, Deputy Massey was able to determine his K9 indicated the presence of illegal narcotics in the vehicle.

 

Narcotics Detectives arrived on scene, to assist Deputy Massey with the search.  Deputies searched the vehicle and located a backpack in the trunk of the vehicle.  A search of the backpack uncovered a baggie containing suspected Fentanyl, two (2) sets of digital scales, baggies, marijuana, and syringes.

 

A field test was conducted on the substance at the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.  The substance yielded a positive result for Fentanyl.  The weight of the Fentanyl was 3.9 grams.

 

Detective Lt. Daryl Kegley charged Wilson with the following charges:

 

1. Trafficking in a Controlled Substance 1st Degree, 2nd Offense (> or = 2 grams Fentanyl) 2. Possession of Marijuana 3. Drug Paraphernalia – Buy/Possess

 

The case remains under investigation by Detective Lt. Daryl Kegley and the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division.  Detective Tan Hudson assisted at the scene.
