OVER 30 MILLION LETHAL DOSES” – Phoenix DEA, Tempe Police Seize OVER 4.5 Million Fentanyl Pills, 140lbs Fentanyl Powder 3,000 Lbs of Meth, 130kg cocaine in Joint Operation



Tempe Police Interim Chief Josie Montenegro, Phoenix DEA Special Agent in Charge Cheri Oz, and questionably elected Arizona
Attorney General Kris Mayes held a joint press conference Thursday to discuss the massive narcotic seizures in the Phoenix
area, including over four and a half million fentanyl pills and over 140 pounds of fentanyl powder.

These dangerous drugs primarily come from criminal illegal drug traffickers with the Sinaloa Cartel, says Cheri Oz.

It is unclear how many narcotics were seized in 2023 to date. “These seizures have occurred over a period of time of just over three years, and the investigations stem from the city of Tempe. The majority of our seizures have occurred locally. But, all the seizures that you do see have occurred within the state of Arizona,” said Interim Chief Josie Montenegro.

Montenegro continued, “the sample you see here today is staggering. There are over four and a half million fentanyl pills, over 140 pounds of fentanyl powder, over 135 kilos of cocaine, over 3000 pounds of methamphetamines, 35 kilos of heroin, 49 firearms, and over 2 million in cash.”

“To date, the monetary value of all the drugs seized is over $13 million.”

Tempe is not the only community seeing the damning effects of this crisis. In 2022 alone, the DEA seized over 50.6 million deadly fentanyl-laced, fake prescription pills and over 10,000 pounds of fentanyl powder, half of which came from Arizona. According to the DEA, this is enough to kill over 379 million people.

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
With the assumption that the amount of drugs seized is only a fraction of what actually makes it through, just the seizures in the last year alone have been enough till kill every living American at least twice if not more.

Which means far more fentanyl is coming into this country than could ever possibly be used to boost the underlying opiate or other drug they're distributing.

So where the hell is the rest of it going?

What would happen if some terrorist were to put a huge amount of fentanyl into a city's water supply?  Or even into our food supply?  Also, is all fentalyl produced in China?  If so, how the heck is it even making here?

And who's buying it? Oceans of unusable supply would overwhelm demand and crash the price toward zero, making it too cheap to make money off of.

Anyone caught producing it or distributing it should never see the light of day...ever.

If by not seeing the light of day you mean  :reaper: then I agree. There is very little legitimate use for Fentanyl, compared to what is flood the nation, and it is produced by legitimate pharmaceutical companies so the only reason to bring in this illegal Fentanyl in this quantity is to cause death.

I agree with you, but you and I know this country won't put drug dealers to death....sadly.
