Arizona Troopers seize over 26 pounds of Fentanyl pills at Border Patrol checkpoint in Gila Bend

PHOENIX, Arizona.- On Friday, September 23, 2022, Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) troopers responded to a U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) inspection checkpoint on State Route 85 at milepost 18, near Gila Bend, after a USBP canine alerted to a vehicle at the inspection.
A search of the suspect vehicle, a white Chevrolet Malibu sedan, revealed an aftermarket compartment in the vehicle containing approximately 26.4 pounds of suspected fentanyl pills, 1.7 pounds of an unknown drug, and .3 pounds of a brown powdery substance.

If you haven’t already, please talk to your loved ones – especially kids and teens – about the dangers of taking unknown pills. Pills laced with potentially deadly amounts of fentanyl are now seen in many colors – not just blue – and may be labeled “M30” to resemble commonly prescribed oxycodone tablets.
