The seizure comes shortly after Flagler County Deputies seized 219 grams of Fentanyl along with some cannabis from Adrian Rivers, 52. Rivers was a fugitive with several warrants from Orange & Volusia counties who was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for a broken headlight. The 219 grams in his possession was enough to kill 100,000 people.

Fentanyl is a National Emergency in the United States with the drug claiming 75% of the overdose deaths in 2021 and responsible for 71,238 deaths total for the year. 2022 will be another record year and the DEA is reporting a new brightly colored version of Fentanyl is being sold throughout the United States. Fentanyl is primarily supplied by the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
