Four Charged in Connection with Fentanyl Overdose Death of Florida College Student: DOJ

According to a statement released by the Department of Justice on Thursday, four fentanyl dealers have been charged in relation to the death of a University of South Florida student.

Darrius Gustafon, 20, David Chudhabuddhi, 37, Miguel Cintron, 35, and Marquise Trant, 35, are accused of conspiring to distribute fentanyl that causes death.

The Department of Justice claims that on February 16, a University of South Florida student died as a result of the four men’s distribution of a deadly quantity of fentanyl.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office undercover agents and detectives were among the four men’s customers after the student’s death when they continued to distribute fentanyl.

When officers carried out a search request at Cintron’s residence, they discovered more than seven kilos of cocaine, one kilogram of black tar heroin, 1,200 crushed fentanyl tablets, cash over $200,000, and firearms.
