|Luis Manuel Charchabal, 53, is behind bars after Miami-Dade police found him in possession of 2.5 kilograms of heroin and Fentanyl.
His arrest is the result of a long-term narcotics investigation. Charchabal is a convicted felon and was booked into the Miami-Dade County jail. He is being charged with three counts of illegal trafficking in heroin and three counts of possession of Fentanyl with intent to deliver.|
Fentanyl is Florida's biggest killer. More people died in Florida from a fentantyl overdose during the first half of 2016 than ever before. Fentanyl killed more than 700 people between January and June 2016 — nearly the same as it did in all of 2015.
Fentanyl killed more people than any other drug, and almost twice as many as heroin.
