A man has been arrested by the Erie County Sheriff's Office after undercover detectives bought pure fentanyl off him. Authorities say one dose would be fatal.
Angel Marcial, 20, was arrested around 1:45 p.m. Friday on Niagara Street. Authorities say he tried to run from police when he saw officers approaching.
Marcial is originally from Rochester, but has an Arthur Street address in the Queen City. Deputies seized 20g of suspected heroin, $4,600 in cash, a loaded semi-automatic handgun, and a scanner set to Buffalo Police Department presets from his home.
Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard said, "If you bought drugs from this man, do not use them. If you use the drugs from this individual, your next dose will very, very likely be your last."
Marcial is being held in the Erie County Holding Center on charges of two counts of criminal sale of a narcotic drug, two counts of criminal possession of a narcotic drug with intent to sell, and two counts of obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.
Deputies say additional charges are anticipated.
