DAYTONA, FL – The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office ended a 5-month narcotics trafficking investigation with an arrest of a suspect facing more than two dozen trafficking-related charges Thursday in Daytona.
Detectives said the arrest will remove a considerable amount of heroin, meth, and fentanyl from the streets.
Romario J. Burrowes, 21, a Jamaican national wanted on 28 counts with a total bond of more than $6.8 million, was arrested without incident Thursday afternoon outside an apartment complex at 600 Jimmy Ann Drive, Daytona Beach.
“Over the course of the investigation, an undercover detective made multiple controlled purchases of heroin, fentanyl, and meth from Burrowes. The amount of drugs totaled 482 grams of heroin, 229.4 grams of fentanyl, and 169 grams of meth,” The VCSO said in a statement. “During Thursday’s arrest and execution of a search warrant, detectives seized another 103 grams of fentanyl, 410 grams of meth, 43 Oxycodone pills, 4 handguns, a little more than $1,000 cash and narcotics paraphernalia.”
Burrowes’ charges include multiple counts of trafficking and delivery of fentanyl, heroin and meth, as well as conspiracy and other crimes.
