Illegal Immigrant Caught With Enough Fentaynl To Kill 500,000 People

With the opioid epidemic continuing to destroy the lives of Americans, officials in Mesa, Arizona were able to arrest two individuals on charges “of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.”

The U.S. District Court in Toledo was able to indict Felipe Penuelas-Rodrguez, 50, and Reyna Trejo, 30, after they were discovered with enough fentanyl to kill 500,000 individuals, approximately one kilogram, as well as 2,100 pills that had also tested positive for fentanyl.

It was when authorities ran background checks that they realized Penuelas-Rodrguez is actually an illegal alien.

U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman stated, “The drugs seized are enough to kill thousands of people…The fentanyl pills stamped to look like prescription painkillers are another reminder that there are no safe drugs available on the street.”
