AUBURN, Ala. - On Sept. 9, 2022, Auburn Police arrested Cameron Howard Campbell, age 26, from Auburn, on a felony warrant charging him with the distribution of a controlled substance (Fentanyl).
The arrest stems from a narcotics investigation conducted by the Auburn Police Department. During the investigation, Cameron Howard Campbell was developed as a suspect that distributed an illegal substance containing suspected Fentanyl. After further investigation, Auburn Police Department officers obtained an arrest warrant for Campbell. He was located and arrested on Sept. 9, 2022.
According to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) (dea.gov/factsheets/fentanyl), Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50-100 times stronger than morphine. The DEA has also provided multiple resources describing the potentially deadly effects of the drug, which can occur from intentional use, as well as accidental skin contact and airborne exposures.
Public warnings published by the DEA describe Fentanyl as being used to “lace” other narcotics, which can result in overdose deaths involving victims who unknowingly encounter the dangerous drug from illicit sales.
Campbell was transported to the Lee County Jail and held on a $25,000 bond. This case remains under investigation by the Auburn Police Department.
