A 27-year-old Orlando man will spend over eight years behind bars after he was caught with firearms and illegal narcotics, including fentanyl.
Jason Santos was sentenced to eight years and four months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and possession of a firearm in the furtherance of a drug trafficking offense.
According to court records, Santos sold cocaine to an undercover deputy of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office on February 15, 2023 and March 14, 2023.
A search warrant was obtained for a residence out of which Santos was operating. During the execution of that warrant, authorities seized multiple controlled substances, including fentanyl, cocaine, LSD, MDA, methamphetamine, alprazolam, and mushrooms.
Additionally, deputies seized 11 firearms, ammunition, a tactical bag, and drug paraphernalia.
Santos, who pled guilty in September 2023, was also ordered to forfeit 11 firearms and various amounts of ammunition that were traceable to the offense.
