A Wellington man is facing drug trafficking charges after investigators found stashes of drugs including fentanyl, cocaine, Adderall and marijuana in a storage locker he rented in suburban Boca Raton, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jason Daniel Miller, 39, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail and faces multiple drug trafficking charges and multiple charges of drug posession with intent to distribute. Judge Dina Keever-Agrama on Wednesday set his bail at $485,000, and that he must prove the money posted for his release did not come from illegal activities.

Investigators say Miller has rented space at Sunshine Self Storage at Boca Rio and Glades roads, just west of Florida’s Turnpike. They received a tip about he had “large amounts of illegal narcotics” there, according to an arrest report. Drug-sniffing police dogs detected the odor of marijuana coming from the space.

Sheriff’s officials searched the space after obtaining a search warrant and say they found:

— 14.4 grams of fentanyl.

— 36 fentanyl patches.

— 114.2 grams — about one-quarter pound — of cocaine.

— 367 oxycodone pills.

— 269 grams of codeine.

— 255 methodone pills.

— 145 Adderall pills

— 99.5 pills of Provigil, a sleep-disorder drug

— 29 grams of morphine

— 11 hydrocodone pills

— 6 Xanax pills.

The report said Miller drove up to the locker while the search was taking place but tried to flee when he saw investigators.
