Detroit Man Arrested in Morgantown Traffic Stop for Fentanyl Possession

Following a check of his car in Morgantown, police in Detroit charged a guy after discovering over 80 grams of fentanyl.

Authorities with the Morgantown Police Department said that on June 25, they observed “a suspect vehicle involved in a hit and run report” from the day before parked in a High Street spot.

While “standing by the vehicle,” Deante Hurt, 27, of Detroit, Michigan, “quickly got into the driver seat and drove forward,” according to the police, prompting them to conduct a traffic stop.

The complaint states that while Hurt was parking the automobile, the police observed him “reaching in many additional places in the car” and “accessing the dash of the vehicle by removing the ventilation/dash controls.”

Hurt had several plastic bags protruding from his right shorts pocket when cops first made contact with him, they reported, and they also “smelled the odor of marijuana.” As a result, Hurt was taken out of the car.

Hurt “admitted to possessing a marijuana blunt, which was impounded from his possession” after reading his Miranda rights, and the complaint states that officers then conducted a search of the car and found about 84.7 grams of a substance that tested positive for fentanyl in the field.

Hurt faces charges related to possessing a controlled substance with the intention of delivering it. On a bond of $50,000, he is being held at North Central Regional Jail.
