FENTANYL DEALER FOUND GUILTY

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Bubba Bramlett announced today that Carlos Dominique Allen of Jackson was convicted by a jury of Sale of Fentanyl, Trafficking of Fentanyl, Possession of Hydrocodone, and Possession of Amphetamine after a three day jury trial. Allen is a habitual offender and subsequent drug offender that may be subjected to a maximum sentence without the eligibility of early release or parole. Judge Dewey Arthur set sentencing in this matter for Monday, March 28, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. at the Madison County Circuit Courthouse.

“This case originated from an overdose and death investigation that occurred in Madison County,” said District Attorney Bramlett. “In this particular case, the Madison Police Department was able to locate the source and purchase Fentanyl pills through the use of a cooperating witness.”

“Our law enforcement in Madison and Rankin Counties should be commended for their tireless efforts in ridding our communities of this deadly drug,” said District Attorney Bramlett. “The Madison Police Department kept over 150 potentially deadly pills of Fentanyl off the streets and out of the hands of our young people.”

Counterfeit pain pills are causing significant overdose deaths in Mississippi. These pills often contain fentanyl, an opioid that is 100 times more potent than morphine. While these pills look identical to medications such as hydrocodone, oxycodone or xanax, these counterfeit versions often contain fentanyl.
