United States police seized a record shipment of synthetic drugs

Gov. Ricketts Thanks State Patrol for Busting Drugs

The Nebraska State Patrol says the 118lbs of suspected cocaine and fentanyl that troopers seized last month turned out to be all fentanyl, which would have been enough to kill more than 26million people.

"I'm especially proud of our troopers and our staff because these drugs, as we know, are contributing to the opioid crisis in our country, which is killing Americans every single day", Bolduc said. "This work is saving lives". This is the largest seizure of fentanyl in the country's history, was written by the experts from Nebraska in a Twitter on Thursday.

The incident occurred April 26, 2018 on Interstate 80 near Kearney, Nebraska, according to SFGate.

Past year the CDC said fentanyl was found in the bodies of the majority of people who died of opioid overdoses in 10 states during the second half of 2016. "A search of the truck and trailer revealed 118 pounds of drugs hidden in a concealed compartment inside the trailer".

Like heroin and other opioids, fentanyl causes drowsiness, nausea and confusion, and overdoses can result in respiratory failure and death.

A trooper stopped a Freightliner truck-tractor and semitrailer that was driving on the shoulder along the interstate and, during the stop, "became suspicious of criminal activity", Nebraska State Patrol said in a statement.

Two shots were fired during a struggle over the gun - both of which passed through a wall without injuring anybody. He was armed with his handgun, and the victim said Floyd threatened to kill her and her family, deputies said.

- The Nebraska State Patrol says the almost 120 pounds of suspected cocaine and fentanyl that troopers seized last month turned out to be all fentanyl, a deadly opioid that federal officials blame for thousands of deaths nationwide.

"When you take that much fentanyl off the street you are saving lives", Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said Thursday.

According to DEA, this amount of fentanyl could have killed 26 million people. It was not immediately clear whether Genao-Minaya has an attorney, and Nunez's public defender could not immediately be reached for comment on the case.

They are being held in county jail on a $100,000 (£74,000) bond.

Synthetic opioids such as fentanyl are the No. 1 killer in the opioid epidemic, according to a report released earlier this month.
