Fugitive found asleep in truck with ‘enough fentanyl to kill entire populations’, Flagler police say

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office said when they found the man, he had enough fentanyl to “kill the entire population of Flagler and Putnam counties.”

James Wilson Duke of Kennesaw, Georgia, was arrested just after 4 a.m. on Sunday at a Mobil gas station in Palm Coast.

A deputy found Duke asleep in his car when he responded to an alarm, FCSO said. He claimed he had permission to be there, but couldn’t tell the officer who told him that.

He also gave officers the incorrect multiple times, according to FCSO. 

Once deputies figured out his real name, they looked Duke up and saw that he had an outstanding arrest warrant in Knox County, Tennessee for failure to appear in court. He was then arrested for giving a false name to law enforcement, loitering or prowling and resisting an officer, FSCO said.

While impounding the truck, deputies found a syringe underneath the passenger seat, then found a black fanny pack with “multiple” plastic bags full of fentanyl in the car. The fentanyl totaled 338 grams, police said.
