A New Bedford man out on bail for a stabbing last February, who also previously served prison time for a manslaughter conviction, was arrested Thursday for trafficking in Fentanyl.

Robert Geliga, 30, was the target of an investigation into a Fentanyl distribution service. The New Bedford Police Narcotics Division executed a search warrant at his address and found 20 bags of Fentanyl, $90 in cash, a digital scale, cutting agents and packaging materials.

Geliga was already out on $50,000 bail set in Superior Court from a stabbing incident in February 2016 outside a North End establishment. He was convicted of manslaughter in 2007, and served six and a half years in state prison.

Geliga was arraigned Friday on the trafficking charges. His bail for the February assault and battery charge stemming from the stabbing was revoked, and an additional $50,000 bail was set for the trafficking case.
