Huge Fentanyl Bust in Minneapolis
The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office says a search warrant was executed earlier this week in Minneapolis and resulted in the seizure of over 5 pounds of powder fentanyl, over a pound of cocaine, a pound of methamphetamine, nearly 1300 fentanyl pills and equipment used to package and distribute narcotics.
A news release says, according to DEA standards, the amount of fentanyl confiscated during the bust was enough to kill tens of thousands of people.
The Sheriff's Office says investigators also seized six handguns and a rifle. The handguns were described as "illegally possessed." One person was taken into custody on felony drugs and weapons charges. Officials say four other people were detained at the residence but were not arrested.
