By

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department released bodycam on Thursday that showed how close a rookie deputy came to losing his life after getting too close to fentanyl (video below).

The incident occurred on July 3 after San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputy David Faiivae and his Field Training Officer, San Diego County Sheriff’s Corporal Scott Crane, searched a vehicle in San Marcos, KSWB reported.

Deputy Crane found a bag of white powder during the search of a red Jeep.

“It could be cocaine or fentanyl,” Cpl. Crane said in the bodycam.

A moment later, the corporal confirmed that the powder had “tested positive for fentanyl.”

He warned the rookie he was training to be very careful handling the fentanyl, the bodycam showed.

“That stuff’s no joke dude,” Cpl. Crane told Deputy Faiivae.

The video of the terrifying incident was released to the public by San Diego County Sheriff William Gore to show just how quickly and deadly fentanyl can be, KSWB reported.
