Orlando Man Pleads Guilty To Conspiracy Involving Fentanyl, Meth, and Firearms

The US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida announced that George Andrew Pherai-Bogeajis (35, Orlando) pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute fentanyl and methamphetamine and possessing firearms in furtherance of that conduct. Pherai-Bogeajis, who was in possession in the largest amount of meth seized in Orlando’s history, faces a minimum mandatory of 15 years, up to life, in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

According to the plea agreement and court documents cited in an official statement from the US Attorney’s office, Pherai-Bogeajis was surveilled paying a known DEA target nearly $150,000 in exchange for a duffle bag in March 2024. A month later, DEA agents searched Pherai-Bogeajis’s primary residence in Orlando and a stash house in Ocoee that he was known to use. Pherai-Bogeajis had approximately 68 kilograms (around 150 pounds) of methamphetamine, nearly a kilogram of fentanyl, four firearms used to protect drugs and drug proceeds, $717,480 in currency, and vehicles used in the offenses, including two vehicles that contained secret compartments to conceal drugs and proceeds during transport. Pherai-Bogeajis has agreed to forfeit the currency that is proceeds of the offense, as well as the firearms and vehicles used to facilitate the offense.
