Man accused of running carfentanil lab faces judge

MIAMI (WSVN) - A South Florida man accused of running a drug lab out of a Southwest Miami-Dade house appeared in bond court, Monday.

Bond for Omega Demetrius DuPont was set at $14,500, three days after he and another man were taken into custody.

FBI investigators arrested DuPont, 45, and 29-year-old Tyree Shawon Tyson after they found carfentanil, a synthetic drug more powerful than heroin, in their house. Authorities also found guns at the residence.

Tyson is being held without bond.

Investigators said the pair sold the illegal drug from the home on several occasions.
