Trio Arrested in St. Pete on Charges of Illegal Sale of Fentanyl


Two Pinellas Park residents and an individual from St. Petersburg were all arrested last Tuesday by Pinellas County deputies on charges related to the sale and trafficking of illegal drugs.

Detectives of the Sheriff's Narcotics Division say they received a tip earlier last month alleging that St. Petersburg's Antwan Jamal Williams was engaged in the illegal sale of drugs from a hotel room at an establishment on U.S. 19 and 34th Avenue North.

Investigators say the detectives verified the tip and obtained a search warrant for the room, which they executed on October 24. Upon execution of the warrant, deputies say they found a significant quantity of illegal drugs: 63 grams of fentanyl (a.k.a. Sublimaze or Actiq), assorted pills of an unknown substance, a quantity of cannabis, and drug paraphernalia. They also allegedly discovered over $19,000 in cash and a .40-caliber handgun and ammunition for it.

Also within the room the deputies discovered Diamond Jeanette Winston and Ralph Robert Daniels, both of Pinellas Park. All three were arrested and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.

The 27-year-old Williams faces charges of trafficking in fentanyl, armed trafficking in fentanyl, sale or delivery of fentanyl, two counts of possession of fentanyl, sale or delivery of cannabis, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, felon in possession of a firearm, and felon in possession of ammunition. He is being held in lieu of a $254,000 bond.

Daniels, who is exactly a month older than Williams, was booked on charges of felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, armed trafficking in fentanyl, two counts of sale of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to sell, failure to appear to face a previous charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage, and possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis. He is being held in lieu of a $147,513 bond.

Winston, a Tennessee native who turned 27 last Friday, was booked on a single count of trafficking in fentanyl. She was released after posting a $50,000 bond.
