CORDOVA, Tenn. (WMC) - A suspect has been arrested after two pounds of fentanyl were seized during a drug bust in Shelby County.

Darius Harshaw, 36, is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent, possession of a weapon during the commission of a dangerous felony, and unlawful possession of a weapon.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, a search warrant was executed at a home on Breezy Valley Drive Wednesday due to an individual being suspected of selling large amounts of fentanyl. In addition to fentanyl, unknown white powder, a weapon, and cash were seized.

The street value of the fentanyl is estimated at $110,000.
