McIntyre has been at the Flagler County Jail since February 2021 when he was arrested during an undercover operation in Bunnell. On October 4, he was given an additional charge of First-Degree Murder by Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance.

“This is another successful investigation of a poison peddler who caused an overdose death facing consequences for murder in Flagler County from selling drugs,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Our detectives did a great job and worked with the State Attorney’s Office to take this poison peddler off the streets and put him behind bars before he could cause another death. I hope this helps bring healing to the family of Chelsea Price and a warning to other poison peddlers – we investigate every overdose death as a murder and you will be next to go to state prison."
