The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday that they closed down a drug house and raided two storage units, collecting nearly 200 pounds of marijuana and enough fentanyl to potentially kill 7,000 people.
ECSO Narcotics Unit deputies and a SWAT team assisted the Mobile Police Department with serving search warrants in Escambia County on Wednesday. They served the search warrants at two storage units on Blue Angel Parkway and Pine Forest Road, and they served another search warrant at a Guerlain Way home.
“They located a total of 191 pounds of marijuana and approximately 14 grams of fentanyl between the three locations,” an ECSO Facebook post said.
According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, two milligrams of fentanyl can be lethal to an average adult, meaning roughly 7,000 people could be killed with the 14 grams of fentanyl found by the ECSO.
The ECSO also said a total of 221 pounds of marijuana was seized when counting searches executed by Mobile police, along with over $100,000 in cash. The department said all suspects involved would be charged.
