Also, during the search of the apartment, a victim of an unreported domestic violence incident was discovered. The victim was found with bruising to her neck and face and advised deputies that Ronquell Bennett (DOB: 10/10/1994) violently assaulted her.

Bennet has previously been arrested for Trespassing and Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle. Smith has previously been arrested for Possession of Amphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, False ID Given to Law Enforcement, Robbery with a Firearm, and Possession of Opium Over 10g.

“While this may appear to be a small amount the reality is this poison peddler had enough fentanyl to kill 2,000 people,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This is another outstanding job by our Special Investigations Unit investigating drug dealing and by our SWAT team that safely served the search warrant. If you suspect drug dealing that is ruining your quality of life in your neighborhood, send us a tip to Tips@flaglersheriff.com.”

Fentanyl seized during the search warrant.

Bennett and Smith were arrested without incident and taken to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. Bennett was arrested for Domestic Battery and is being held on a $1,000 bond. Smith was arrested for Possession of Fentanyl with Intent to Distribute and is being held on no bond.

Additional charges are pending as the investigation is still ongoing.
