Drug Trafficker In Custody On $6.8 Million Bond


Daytona Beach, FL - The subject of a 5-month investigation is likely to remain in jail for a while after his charges racked up a bond worth a grand total of $6.8 million.

The Six Million Dollar man in this case is not Lee Majors, but Jamaican national Romario Burrowes. Volusia County deputies say he’s facing a total of 28 trafficking-related charges after deputies seized a significant amount of heroin, fentanyl and meth.

A report says an undercover operation is what led to Burrowes’ arrest. During the operation, an undercover detective made multiple controlled purchases of heroin, fentanyl and meth from Burrowes. In total, Burrowes sold the deputy 482 grams of heroin, almost 230 grams of fentanyl and 169 grams of meth.

On Thursday (March 3), deputies served a search warrant at an apartment on Jimmy Ann Drive. There they found another 103 grams of fentanyl, 410 grams of meth, 43 Oxycodone pills, four handguns, drug paraphernalia, and a little more than $1,000 in cash. Burrowes was arrested that same day without incident.

All said, Burrowes is facing a grand total of 32 charges—the 28 trafficking charges and four other charges. He is set to appear before a judge Friday afternoon (March 4).
