A 51-year-old man suspected of selling fentanyl to a man who died in a bathroom in Temecula was in custody Wednesday.

Kevin Bryant was located at the San Ysidro Port of Entry Sunday by personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Overdose Death Investigations and Narcotics Unit and taken into custody without incident, according to Sgt. Sean Liebrand.

The Carlsbad resident was booked into the Byrd Detention Center on suspicion of murder, Liebrand said.

Deputies were dispatched to the 27500 block of Jefferson Avenue in Temecula on Feb. 12, 2022, at around 7:10 p.m. after reports of an unresponsive man inside a bathroom stall, Liebrand said. Deputies attempted lifesaving measures for Cameron Trask, 43, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Trask died as a result of fentanyl poisoning, according to the coroner’s bureau

Detectives investigated the incident over several months and identified Bryant as the person who sold the fentanyl to Trask, Liebrand said.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Investigator Garcia-Flores at 951-955-1700.
