AL: Police find nearly 200 fentanyl pills hidden in Easter eggs, Alabama man arrested

The Colbert County Sheriff’s Office said Jamarious Dequan Qualls was arrested on Monday after police seized fentanyl and cannabis from his car.

A man was arrested after authorities in Alabama found nearly 200 fentanyl pills hidden in Easter eggs during a traffic stop.

The Colbert County Sheriff’s Office said they arrested Jamarious Dequan Qualls, 29, at around noon on Monday after a traffic stop in Tuscumbia, about 115 miles north of Birmingham.

Qualls, who had a misdemeanor warrant for his arrest in a different city, consented to have drug agents search his car, the sheriff’s office said.

While he was being arrested, agents found two plastic containers with 176 fentanyl pills inside and a plastic bag containing 1oz of “spice” synthetic cannabis.

A photo of the seized drugs showed that the two containers looked like Easter eggs.
