Two arrested in Moorhead drug bust; $5,000 in Fentanyl seized
MOORHEAD — Two people are in custody after a drug bust in Moorhead on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
According to a news release from the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the drug bust started with the Lakes to River Drug Task Force executing a search warrant at 868 37th Ave. S. in Moorhead as a part of an ongoing drug investigation.
The sheriff's office said they seized crack-cocaine, prescription medicine, 24 grams of Fentanyl powder and 1/2 a pound of heroin during the bust.
The two residents of the home were arrested and identified as Donald Ray Quin Jr., 33, and Candi Latrice Wilson, 30, and there were three young children found at the residence, according to the sheriff's office.
Quin Jr. and Wilson were charged with first-degree controlled substance possession of heroin and two other drug-related charges, the release said.
According to the sheriff's office report, the Drug Enforcement Agency says 2 milligrams of Fentanyl is lethal to most people and the 24 grams seized in Moorhead would be enough to kill 12,000 people.
The sheriff's office says the estimated street value of the Fentanyl is $5,000. It was sent to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Laboratory for further analysis.
On Wednesday Wilson and Quinn were in court and are both facing nine drug-related charges. Both are set to appear in court Oct. 10 for an omnibus hearing.
