According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, deputies pulled over Todd Kerr, 50, and Steven Sestac, 41, following a tip, and found more than 100 baggies with fentanyl residue in their vehicle. Detectives then searched a home on Lake McGregor Drive where Kerr rents a room. Inside, detectives discovered 24.08 grams of fentanyl, 7.23 grams of heroin, 1.79 grams of MDMA, and Oxycodone pills.
According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the lethal dose of fentanyl is 2 milligrams.
