MARMET drug task force seizes 430 grams of fentanyl in Marion County bust
MARION — A Marion man has been arrested following one of the largest fentanyl busts in county history, according to law enforcement officials.
In a press release issued Friday, May 1, Lt. Chris Adkins of the MARMET Drug Task Force said the unit seized 430 grams of fentanyl, $10,000 in cash, and a firearm during the raid of locations in the 400 blocks of Executive and Lynn drives and the 100 block of South Seffner Avenue. Task force members executed warrant searches at each location last week. The raid ended an investigation that lasted several months, Adkins said.
Officers arrested Travon Floyd, 23, Marion, as a result of the investigation. Charges against Floyd are pending. No court date has been scheduled, according to online court records. He is being held at the Multi-County Correctional Center.
