Florida Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Distributing Fentanyl, Methamphetamine

Release Date: June 21, 2024

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Florida man has been sentenced for the distribution of narcotics, including fentanyl and methamphetamine, following a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Jacksonville investigation.

Andre Lee Long, 48, of Jacksonville, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for the distribution of 40 grams or more of fentanyl and 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine. The court also ordered Long to forfeit a rifle and $113,074, which were traceable to proceeds of the offense. Long entered a guilty plea on Mar. 14, 2024.

According to court documents, HSI Jacksonville and the Clay County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation of Long for fentanyl distribution. During the course of three transactions on June 14, June 21, and July 18, 2023, Long distributed over 220 grams of fentanyl to a confidential informant. Prior to each transaction, surveillance footage captured Long leaving his residence and meeting the informant in a parking lot.

On Aug. 1, 2023, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Long’s residence and located more than 360 grams of methamphetamine, approximately 44 grams of fentanyl, and small quantities of crack cocaine. Authorities also seized a rifle, ammunition, drug scales, baggies, drug paraphernalia and over $113,000 in cash.

This case was investigated by HSI, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirwinn Mike.
