An 18-time convicted felon is back in jail after a month-long undercover investigation into drug trafficking, announced the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday.

Alonzo Lewis, 34, was arrested by detectives from the HCSO’s Opioid Overdose Investigations Section, who discovered he was selling dangerous drugs in the community.

During the investigation, undercover officers conducted several transactions, obtaining over 14 grams of fentanyl from Lewis, which led to his arrest. He was also found in possession of cocaine and oxycodone.

Sheriff Chronister stated, “I am proud of our detectives for taking Alonzo Lewis off the streets. He was not only putting our residents at risk with these drugs but also profiting illegally. We will not tolerate this behavior. That’s why we have our Opioid Overdose Investigations Section—to rid our streets of these deadly substances and those distributing them.”

Lewis faces multiple charges, including trafficking fentanyl, possession with intent to sell fentanyl, cocaine, and oxycodone, attempted purchase of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The investigation is ongoing.
