WILMINGTON — Grand jurors indicted a man in connection with a local traffic stop when he allegedly put a bag of 113 fentanyl capsules into his mouth before spitting it out.

Bradley Allen Bennett, 29, of Wilmington, is indicted with aggravated possession of drugs (fentanyl), aggravated trafficking in drugs (fentanyl), possessing cocaine and trafficking in heroin.

Shortly after the March 31 incident, a Wilmington police detective said crime lab results indicated the bag held 113 fentanyl capsules and two cocaine capsules.

Fentanyl is a painkiller “similar to but more potent than morphine,” according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Fentanyl is a drug classified as an opioid.

“Mixing fentanyl with street-sold heroin or cocaine markedly amplifies their potency and potential dangers,” NIDA states.
