LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A student at Lehigh Senior High School is accused of bringing several types of drugs with her to school.

According to Lee County deputies, a search of 18-year-old Ayanna Felix’s backpack revealed eighteen bags of Fentanyl (2.7 grams), twenty-one bags of cocaine (2.5 grams), and eight bags of marijuana (6.1 grams).

She was arrested and charged with possession of a fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana and drug equipment, and was transported to the Lee County Jail without incident.

Sheriff Carmine Marceno says "illegal drugs in a school are no less dangerous than guns in a school. We are thankful for the Crime Stoppers tip that came in so these drugs are now out of the schools and off our streets."
