BREAKING NEWS – Spartanburg, South Carolina – A South Carolina woman was arrested last week after authorities allegedly discovered nearly 1,500 grams of fentanyl while she was being monitored for “drug-selling activities.”

Spartanburg resident Katelin Lee Abernathy, 25, was arrested after a traffic stop revealed 941 grams of fentanyl, 20 grams of meth, one Glock pistol and one SKS rifle, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday.

According to calculations by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the fentanyl allegedly found in Abernathy’s possession had the potential to kill around 736,000 people.

Her attorney said she had the gun, to protect her from “thieves and other low life criminals that would try to steal her property.” He also said that Abernathy did not have enough fentanyl to kill 736,000 people, but the number is closer to 680,000 people, and he accused the DEA of exaggerating, just to make his client look guilty.
