San Francisco police seized the pile of fentanyl that could kill whole population of the city
San Francisco Police Department Narcotics officers served three search warrants in Oakland, California. During the raids, a colossal amount of prohibited psychotropic substances was revealed.
“Amount of fentanyl seized in SFPD’s Narcotics operation is ‘enough lethal overdoses to wipe out San Francisco's population four times over,’” Chief Scott says.
During the search, officers recovered two semi-automatic, unregistered, un-serialized firearms also known as ghost guns, over 45 thousand dollars in U.S. Currency, a “kilo press” and nearly 30 pounds of drugs which equates to more than 13 kilos, including more than 16 pounds (over 7 kilos) of fentanyl, says the press release.
Five people were reportedly arrested and taken to the Santa Rita Jail.
The opioid crisis in the United States, and in particular in Texas and California, has worsened since the entry of Joe Biden into the presidency. Earlier, Texas Governor Greg Abbott appealed to the president for help in containing illegal migrants from the south, but for months the president and vice president ignored the border crisis.
