10,000 freshly pressed fentanyl pills with a street value of $300,000, was intercepted Wednesday.
This street poison from New York was transported here by three men suspected to be part of a larger drug trafficking organization. The apprehensions and seizure happened in the parking lot of a retail shopping plaza on Federal Highway.
30-year old Jeffry Ezequiel Gonzalez-Ortiz, 26-year old Yelson Daniel Alvarez-Ortiz and 36-year old Carlos Antonio Almonte-Melo, all of New York, were arrested and charged with trafficking in fentanyl, which carries a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years in prison.
The flow of “mass death” into our small town is real. We may never completely break the drug pipeline, but we will never tire in our efforts to disrupt it.
