Obstructed tag leads to fentanyl charge for Jacksonville man


Posted

MIDDLEBURG – A Jacksonville man was stopped on Blanding Boulevard on April 30 with an obstructed license tag, and he wound up going to the Clay County Jail for trafficking 51.1 grams of fentanyl.

Mark Yevgeni Kholodnyi, 42, was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license after a deputy said he couldn’t read his tag in the 1500 block of Blanding at 1:14 a.m. The tag was so unreadable that he called out the wrong information when he reported it to dispatch.

Although Kholodnyi didn’t have his license, the deputy learned his license was suspended for 12 different violations.

During an inventory search, deputies found two glass pipes, a bag containing 10.2 grams of methamphetamine and three bags containing a total of 51.1 grams of fentanyl. Deputies also found multiple counterfeit bills and a printer.

Kholodnyi’s bond is $70,008. His next court date is June 4.
