Two Arrested In Flagler County Drug Bust

Fentanyl among other narcotics seized by deputies


Palm Coast, FL - A Wedgewood Lane home was the location of a drug bust that landed two Flagler County adults in jail on Wednesday (August 18).

The Flagler County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) says the home was raided after an undercover operation, carried out by the FCSO Special Investigations Unit (SIU), landed investigators with a search warrant on the home.

During the search, deputies located 28-year-old Erik Zimmerman and 32-year-old Samantha Zimmerman—their relation is unknown at this time. According to a release from the sheriff's office, Erik was the initial target of the investigation.

After searching the home, deputies uncovered a multitude of narcotics that includes: fentanyl, alprazolam, oxycodone, clonazepam, prescription drugs gabapentin, and trazodone hydrochloride.

“If you are a poison peddler in Flagler County we are coming for you next,” Flagler Sheriff Staly said. “Our SIU and SWAT team did another great job and now these drug dealers have a new room at the Green Roof Inn.
