Deputies seize more than 150,000 fentanyl pills, sheriff’s office says
WASHINGTON COUNTY Ore. (KPTV/Gray News) – Authorities in Oregon said they’ve seized more than 150,000 fentanyl pills and three kilograms of powdered fentanyl.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said it received a report from California’s Alameda County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday for a car that was heading to Portland.
California officials said the vehicle was likely trafficking a large amount of fentanyl.
Authorities said the car was found at a home. After securing a search warrant, deputies recovered the fentanyl pills and fentanyl in powder form with the help of a K-9 patrol.
If the seized drugs were sold at street value, deputies said the total cost of the drugs would come to $575,000.
