MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy man received probation after he was found with suspected fentanyl earlier this month.

Alexandar P. Blair, 28, received two years of probation, a $25 fine, and 180 days of suspended jail time for fifth-degree felony possession of drugs this week in Miami County Municipal Court. He was found guilty and sentenced after a preliminary hearing was previously scheduled for this case in municipal court.

Blair was originally charged following an investigation into a separate reported incident that began in Butler Township in Montgomery County on March 19. That investigation from Butler Township did not result in any charges, but a consensual search of his vehicle was made on the 700 block of Crawford Street in Troy. During a search, a packet of drugs, which Blair allegedly admitted was fentanyl, was found, according to previous reports from the Troy Police Department.
