LEWIS COUNTY, Wash. — Officials with the Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team say $535,000 worth of suspect fentanyl pills and heroin were seized during a traffic stop in Lewis County on Monday.
Police said they found about 26,000 suspected fentanyl pills, 1,011 grams of heroin and a loaded firearm inside the car.
Four people were arrested.
Police identified them as 32-year-old Erika Cardenas-Sanchez of Phoenix, 36-year-old Adam Collier, of Scottsdale, 19-year-old Marlen Cardenas of Phoenix and a 17-year-old girl also from Phoenix.
Police said a 1-year-old child was in the car during the arrests and was placed into protective custody with Child Protective Services.
“With the current opioid epidemic, this is a significant seizure and directly impacts our community’s safety,” JNET officials said in a news release. “If these drugs had made it to the streets, there would have been approximately 36,000 doses to distribute.”
