CLEARWATER — A 23-year-old man faces two felony narcotics charges after lab tests revealed that substances found in his home in June were the opioid fentanyl and MDMA, or ecstasy.
The ecstasy pills were colored orange and in the shape of President Donald Trump’s head, according to an arrest report.
Brendan Dolan-King, who was already in the Pinellas County jail on other charges, was arrested Friday with twin counts of possession of a controlled substance, according to Clearwater police.
Officers said they discovered the substances inside an air vent in Dolan-King’s apartment on June 25 after responding to a call about an overdose. Dolan-King had given officers permission to search the residence, the report said.
The substances were seized as evidence and submitted to a forensic lab for testing. Tests revealed that a tan powder found in the vent was fentanyl and the five orange tablets in the shape of Trump’s head were MDMA, the report said.
Dolan-King had been in custody since June on charges of marijuana possession with intent to sell and probation violation. The probation violation stemmed from a conviction last year on cocaine and marijuana possession charges.
