Florida Man’s DMV Mistake Unveils Enough Fentanyl to Erase a Small City
Meet Christopher Wright, a 38-year-old from DeFuniak Springs, Florida, who recently found himself in a bit of a pickle with the law. It all began innocently enough with a classic case of a mismatched vehicle registration (not the Fentanyl). Uh Oh. Ya know, if you’re going to engage in illicit activities, at least make sure your paperwork is on point.
According to Yahoo News, Christopher was cruising down Highway 90 when the eagle-eyed deputies of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office noticed that his registration had some issues. But as it turns out, this traffic stop would have more thamn a paper trail of trouble. Clearly, the universe had other plans for Mr. Wright that day.
Welcome the K-9 unit. They’re the four-legged Sherlock Holmes of the law enforcement world. This furry detective had a search on the horizon, and was about to uncover something fishier than a seafood market on a hot summer day.
Lo and behold, the search unveiled a drug stash that could make Walter White raise an impressed eyebrow. Nearly 30 grams of fentanyl, a dash of meth, and some drug paraphernalia. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, that amount of fentanyl could theoretically take out a small army. Note to criminals: if you have a secret drug stash, maybe don’t take it on a scenic drive.
In the end, Christopher Wright, faced a laundry list of charges.Everything from trafficking fentanyl to possessing controlled substances without a prescription. He was promptly booked into the Walton County Jail, but fear not! Our man didn’t linger too long behind bars. Thanks to a $50,000 bond, he’s back on the streets, possibly planning his next vehicular adventure.
