The Warren County Sheriff’s Office Special Problem and Drug Enforcement units (SPADE) stopped a vehicle for speeding on April 28th.

During the stop, a K-9 used a free-air sniff to notify the officers of the presence of narcotics.

Following a search of the vehicle, the officers confiscated 1000 Fentanyl laced oxycodone pills with a street value of $40,000.

Fentanyl is 50-100 times stronger than morphine and can be lethal with as little as 2 milligrams.
