A Stillwater man has been detained on $100,000 bail after facing a charge of fentanyl trafficking.
On Thursday, the Washington County Jail incarcerated John Doe, 45, of Stillwater, on a charge of First Degree Sale of a Controlled Substance, according to court records.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has accused Doe of selling more than 10 grams of fentanyl, a powerful opioid painkiller, on multiple occasions.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Doe allegedly sold the drug to a confidential informant over the course of two days in June.
In a statement, Sheriff William Hutton said, “We are committed to holding individuals accountable who are contributing to the opioid epidemic in our communities.”
The Sheriff’s Office is also asking members of the public to contact them with any information about the case.
A Washington County District Court Judge ordered Doe to be held on $100,000 bail for the fentanyl trafficking charge.
If convicted, Doe could face up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
