A narcotics investigation that began earlier this year culminated in the arrest of a DeLand drug dealer operating in Central Florida this month. Detectives searched his home and discovered trafficking amounts of fentanyl and other drugs, as well as several guns and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, all within reach of children in the house.

Wynell Pitts, of DeLand, was arrested in a takedown after he dropped his child off at daycare and then appeared to complete two drug transactions from his vehicle. For safety reasons, detectives who had him under surveillance at the time elected to wait until he left the daycare facility to approach and place him under arrest.

Pitts was arrested on his active warrant for sale and delivery of fentanyl within 1,000 feet of a middle school. During a search of the vehicle, detectives recovered:
