Eleven Tampa-Area Defendants Face Charges Relating To Fentanyl Overdoses In Town 'N Country


The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of almost a dozen individuals it says were involved in a drug trafficking organization involved in several fentanyl overdoses in the Town 'N Country area.

Per the Sheriff's Office, the eleven defendants were involved in an operation to distribute heroin and fentanyl by the pound throughout the Hillsborough County area, with their drug activity allegedly yielding more than a dozen overdoses and at least one fatality.

Two of the defendants are from Tampa, three are from Clearwater, and six are of Kissimmee. They join an Orlando man who previously pled guilty to a charge for heroin and a Kissimmee man scheduled for trial next month.

Several agencies were involved in the investigation, which took place under the name Operation Pocket Dial. In addition to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the Tampa Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Florida Highway Patrol, and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida all played a role in the project.

If convicted, the eleven defendants face a wide range of potential sentencing options, from five years in prison to a life sentence.
