LCSO arrests student suspected of having possession of fentanyl at school

A student is facing drug charges as she is suspected of bringing an array of drugs, including fentanyl, to school.

The suspect, Ayanna Felix, 18, is being charged with possession of fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana and drug equipment. Fentanyl is a deadly narcotic. The synthetic opioid is 800 to 1,000 times stronger than morphine and has been implicated in the ongoing American opioid crisis.

Lee County Sheriff’s Office school resource officers brought Felix to the principal’s office at Lehigh Senior High School. In her backpack, she is suspected of having 18 bags of Fentanyl (2.7 grams), 21 bags of Cocaine (2.5 grams) and eight bags of Marijuana (6.1 grams), according to the LCSO press release.

Felix has been transported to the Lee County Jail.

“Illegal drugs in a school are no less dangerous than guns in a school,” LCSO Sheriff Carmine Marceno said. “We are thankful for the Crime Stoppers tip that came in, so these drugs are now out of the schools and off our streets.”
