FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - The largest drug sweep in Flagler County resulted in the seizure of $40,848 worth of drugs, including enough heroin and fentanyl to kill more than 14,000 people, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies announced the results of the eight-month Operation Heat Wave on Tuesday, touting the fact that 28 grams of fentanyl and heroin, 124.23 grams of cocaine, 98.44 grams of synthetic cathinones, more than 8 grams of methamphetamine, 3.6 pounds of cannabis and THC oil and more than 68 grams of other controlled substances are off the street.

Three guns and $4,800 in cash were also confiscated, according to a news release.

“This is the largest drug sweep Flagler County has ever seen and our detectives did a phenomenal job following up on all leads and getting these poison peddlers off the streets,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Detectives seized enough Fentanyl and Heroin to kill over 14,000 people. Many tips were sent in by community members who followed the ‘see something, say something’ initiative and notified us when they saw suspicious activity or knew of drug dealers in our county. We are dedicated to working together to get this poison out of our community.”

So far, 21 of 40 suspected drug dealers have been arrested as part of the operation. Arrest warrants have been issued for the others.

Among those who are in custody is 26-year-old Sha’Quan Robinson, who is accused of selling heroin to an undercover officer while on a garbage truck working for Waste Pro.
