DELAND DRUG DEALER ARRESTED AFTER FATAL OVERDOSE IN DELTONA
Less than 48 hours after a young woman died of a suspected drug overdose in Deltona, the VSO Overdose Task Force (ODTF) identified the dealer, took him into custody after an undercover purchase, and recovered fentanyl pills pressed to imitate Oxycodone.
The ODTF investigation began Monday after the 23-year-old woman died at the hospital in the early-morning hours. Detectives quickly identified a dealer in DeLand, 23-year-old Nathan LeBeau (DOB 6/17/2000).
After setting up an undercover purchase from LeBeau, detectives with the ODTF and East and West Volusia Narcotics Task Forces arrested him Tuesday night and recovered several pills identified as Oxycodone, which tested positive for fentanyl.
A search warrant at LeBeau’s residence on Oak Park Drive in DeLand resulted in the recovery of trafficking amounts of fentanyl pills, as well as alprazolam and psilocybin and a pill crusher.
LeBeau was charged with trafficking in fentanyl, possession of fentanyl with intent to sell, use of a 2-way communication device to commit a felony, possession of alprazolam and psilocybin with intent to sell, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia. He is being held at the Volusia County Branch Jail with no bond as of this writing.
