    30,000 fentanyl pills seized in Arizona drug bust

    30,000 fentanyl pills seized in Arizona drug bust

    By STEPHANIE EBBS

    Updated 3 hours ago The Interior Department announced Friday that agents on the department's opioid task force seized about 30,000 fentanyl pills and other illegal drugs at U.S. points of entry on the Tohono O'odham Nation lands in Arizona.

    The Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs launched an opioid task force with state, local and tribal officials last year focused on combating illegal drugs in Indian Country. As part of an investigation into fentanyl pills being trafficked onto tribal lands, undercover BIA agents purchased the drugs and took three suspects into custody.

    Fentanyl is the drug connected to the most overdose deaths in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Earlier this year, border patrol agents announced the largest fentanyl bust in U.S. history along the border.

    Those Indians are on the take with the cartel. That is why they do not want the "wall".

    Arizona Police, Feds Seize 45,000 Fentanyl Pills in Two Operations

    Two separate investigations by Phoenix police narcotics investigators and a joint Bureau of Indian Affairs and Drug Enforcement Administration operation resulted in the seizure of 45,000 fentanyl pills this past week. One incident occurred in west Phoenix while the second took place on an Indian reservation that sits on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    The first seizure took place on Tuesday when Phoenix Police Department narcotics detectives received information from a patrol officer about possible illegal activity at a Motel 6 located near 59th Avenue and Interstate 10 on the city’s west side. A patrol officer arrested an adult female identified inside one of the rooms at that location.


    During the arrest of the female, patrol officers observed drug ledgers and other items recognized to be drug paraphernalia which led to the request for assistance from narcotics detectives. Upon the arrival of detectives, the investigators detained a 38-year-old male identified as Emmanuel Romero Hernandez. Detectives then searched the room and discovered approximately 15,000 fentanyl pills, two handguns, scales, multiple cell phones, and more than $9,000 in cash. After being interviewed, Hernandez claimed that he was given $5,000 dollars by two men he met the day before who allegedly told him to hold on to the fentanyl pills. Police transported Hernandez to the Maricopa County Jail and charged with possession of narcotic drugs for sale, money laundering, and misconduct involving weapons, according to a KTAR report.


    The second seizure resulted from a joint operation involving opioid task force with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) related to a Mexican drug trafficking organization. The traffickers allegedly smuggled large quantities of fentanyl pills and other drugs from Mexico through U.S. points of entry into the Nation lands, according to the Interior Department this Friday. The task force also consisted of state, local, and tribal officials who in 2018 began the investigation. The operation utilized undercover BIA agents who purchased the fentanyl pills and more than $100,000 worth of other drugs on Arizona tribal lands. The controlled drug buys resulted in the arrests of three non-Indian suspects.


    Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate that according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. The illicit drug has been attributed to the alarming increase in opioid overdose deaths throughout the United States.

    Previous Deportee Busted Running Fentanyl Ring, Say Phoenix Police

    A Mexican national arrested last week at a west Phoenix motel for possession of 15,000 fentanyl pills was identified as a previously deported criminal alien suspected of leading a local fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine ring, say police.

    Previously deported 38-year-old Emmanuel Romero Hernandez was arrested by Phoenix Police narcotics detectives at a west-side Motel 6 last Tuesday and was later identified as a “leader of a Phoenix-based cell responsible for the sale and distribution of 50,000 fentanyl pills, multiple pounds of methamphetamine and heroin per month,” according to court records.


    Romero Hernandez’s arrest took place when Phoenix Police received information from a patrol officer about possible illegal activity at a Motel 6 located near 59th Avenue and Interstate 10. A patrol officer arrested an adult female inside one of the rooms. During the arrest, officers observed drug ledgers and other paraphernalia which led to the request for assistance from narcotics detectives. Investigators later detained Romero Hernandez. Detectives searched the room and discovered approximately 15,000 fentanyl pills, two handguns, scales, multiple cell phones, and more than $9,000 in cash. After being interviewed, Hernandez claimed he was given $5,000 by two men he met the day before who allegedly told him to hold on to the fentanyl, according to authorities. Police transported Hernandez to the Maricopa County Jail and charged him with possession of narcotic drugs for sale, money laundering, and misconduct involving weapons for being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm.


    It was later determined that Romero Hernandez was the target of a three-month investigation led by Tempe Police where couriers were intercepted delivering illicit drugs in Tempe, Phoenix, and Avondale on Romero Hernandez’s direction, say police. His Phoenix-based drug trafficking cell was responsible for the sale and distribution of 50,000 fentanyl pills and multiple pounds of methamphetamine and heroin per month, according to court records. Investigators revealed that the drugs found in Hernandez’s alleged possession was worth over $160,000.


    Additionally, court records show that Romero Hernandez was given a lifetime ban from entering the United States in 2017 after he was deported. He completed a prior prison sentence for drug sales in Arizona. Romero Hernandez reportedly admitted to illegally crossing back into the United States near Nogales approximately one year ago. He is being held on a $100,000 bond for conspiracy to sell and transport narcotics and dangerous drugs along with firearm violations.


    In 2018, Breitbart News reported on a Mexico-linked drug gang busted in Buckeye, Arizona, by undercover investigators for the Maricopa County Drug Suppression Task Force. Police netted three arrests, 15 pounds of methamphetamine, and 519 fentanyl pills. Buckeye, approximately 30 miles west of downtown Phoenix, experienced a fentanyl-related death at a local high school, which drew significant local media attention. A Verrado High School baseball pitcher died unexpectedly in his home in early May from an accidental overdose, according to a medical examiner’s office report.

    Federal Tent City on Federal Land with a panel of Federal Judges.

    Get them OUT of our local and state jurisdictions, courts and prisons.

    They are not legal U.S. citizens and have no right to be tried in our courts.

    Separate them and put them in Federal Tent City to serve time and/or deport.
