“That’s a huge arrest,” said Sheriff Bobby McCallum. “We always want to put numbers to how much that amount of fentanyl could kill and probably the entire of Levy County. That’s a trafficking amount. That’s 5 times the amount by Florida law that considers it trafficking rather than just sale, delivery, or possession.”
Myers was booked into the Levy County Jail on a more than $122,000 bond.
