HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania State Police seized $7,050,174 worth of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and other illegal drugs in the second quarter of this year.
From April 1 through June 30, state police seized more than 22 pounds of heroin and more than 21 pounds of the synthetic opioid fentanyl. In its purest form, only a small amount of fentanyl can cause a severe or potentially deadly reaction, putting not only users but also anyone who encounters the drug at risk, Troopers said. The illegal opioids have a combined street value of $1,008,520.
Troopers also removed nearly 37 pounds of cocaine and more than 43 pounds of methamphetamines from the highways and communities of Pennsylvania during the same period.
In addition, Troopers confiscated more than $5.7 million in prohibited drugs in the first quarter of 2018, including 22 pounds of heroin and fentanyl.
