According to WBOY, a Michigan man has been charged after deputies found almost a pound of fentanyl during a vehicle search in Harrison County on Wednesday.
Deputies with the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department were conducting narcotics activity surveillance on Benedum Drive in Bridgeport when they saw a vehicle pull into a driveway, according to a criminal complaint.
The vehicle left the parking lot 30 minutes later, and officers followed behind until they say they saw the vehicle “swerving left to right inside the lane” while on Emily Drive and performed a traffic stop.
Deputies were able to identify the vehicle’s driver as Jermaine Blackmon, 28, of Warren, Michigan, and a K-9 unit was deployed to perform a free air sniff of the vehicle, according to the criminal complaint.
