$143,000 in methamphetamine and fentanyl seized on I-75 in Alachua County

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – Rayon David Binger, 42, was arrested yesterday afternoon after a traffic stop on Interstate 75.

At about 2:37 p.m., an Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy saw a vehicle with an obstructed temporary tag; when he ran the tag, he reportedly found that it was not assigned to that vehicle. He conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the single occupant of the vehicle, a resident of Panama City who is from Jamaica and living in the United States on a temporary work visa.

The deputy deployed his drug detection K-9, which alerted on the vehicle, and a search was conducted, reportedly producing over 2 kg of methamphetamine in brick form and about 78 grams of fraudulent oxycodone pills mixed with fentanyl. The methamphetamine was reportedly packaged in plastic food storage bags and coated with liquid laundry detergent, which is a tactic commonly used to conceal the scent of the drugs from K-9s. The total street value of the drugs was estimated at $143,108. An undetermined amount of cash was also reportedly found in the car, “in denominations consistent with drug transactions.”

Binger has been charged with possession of trafficking amounts of methamphetamine and fentanyl, maintaining a vehicle for the purpose of distributing drugs, and possession of drug equipment. He has a criminal history in another county and is being held on $205,000 bail.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

  • You know what you do with a guy like this? when he’s done serving hard time in our country you ship his ass back to his and refuse any other “temporary work” visas from this POS.

    • They should send back all illegal aliens to their countries
      Of origin and close that southern border too…

    • Gilberto: Is being “woke” what caused this Jamaican guy on
      A temporary work visa to deal drugs here in our country
      And kill POC with fentanyl? He had a fake license tag
      And no auto insurance…you know this criminal would
      Be a “hit & run” driver too under those circumstances.
      Good work by law enforcement & now someone needs
      To contact ICE and send him back to Jamaica with no
      Return to USA ever…can he be sent to Guantanamo
      To serve his criminal sentence?

    • We are quite woke to the crimes being perpetrated by individuals like this guy.

      Watch out for the cliff.

  • We are blessed to have eagle eyed cops here. But our tax-funded lawyers and judges are blind from money and fancy chambers. Let’s hope the Feds take over this case and sends him home.
