$2.6M in fentanyl ceased in North Carolina’s largest bust, authorities say

22 pounds of fentanyl seized could kill 5 million people, Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office says

Detectives in Forsyth County, North Carolina, have seized over $2.6 million of fentanyl – enough of the deadly drug to kill 5 million people – in the largest bust in the county’s history, authorities said last week.

The seizure was part of an ongoing investigation that began in September 2021 when the Forsyth County Drug Task Force learned that 31-year-old Lakeith Rayvon Lindsay, of Winston-Salem, may be distributing narcotics throughout the county, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

After further investigation, detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for a residence on Autumn Mist Drive in Winston-Salem.

Detectives seized 22 pounds of fentanyl with an estimated street value of approximately $2,665,000, the sheriff’s office said. 

Three kilograms of marijuana, two firearms, various drug paraphernalia, including a kilo drug press and heat sealer, and $4,000 in cash were also seized, according to authorities.
