Ohio Police Seize Enough Fentanyl to ‘Kill 3 or 4 million’ from Mexican Cartel

Ohio law enforcement made a series of arrests and drug seizures, including enough fentanyl to “kill 3 or 4 million” Americans, in Clark County Tuesday, according to a Dayton Daily News report.

An investigation into Mexican drug cartels yielded the capture of four Mexican nationals and one American on drug trafficking charges and related offenses.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced that police seized 100 pounds of marijuana and thousands in cash, but the deadly haul of fentanyl is law enforcement’s most important confiscation:

“What you’re looking at here is enough fentanyl to kill every man, woman and child in the Miami Valley,” DeWine said. “In fact, even beyond the Miami Valley. I think this is enough to kill 3 or 4 million in the state of Ohio.”

Fentanyl, the use of which has risen in the midst of the opioid crisis, can kill a human simply through touch. A 10-year-old Miami, Fla. boy died in 2017 after his skin made contact with the drug.

DeWine said that the cartel traffickers brought the deadly substance over the U.S.-Mexico border.
