Huge Drug Bust In WNY: “Enough Fentanyl To Wipe Out Erie County”
It's not often we see huge drug busts in Western New York but that's exactly what happened this past week in Buffalo.
According to WKBW, U.S. Attorney's Office has announced four people have been arrested in what was called a prolific drug trafficking ring in Western New York.
Three of the four people arrested are from Buffalo.
11 search warrants were issued in Western New York last week. $700,000 and drugs were found.
Fentanyl was part of the drug bust and according to police, "enough fentanyl was found to wipe out Erie County"...
Hydraulic traps, money, guns were found at the locations they searched -- 56 Grimes, 2896 Bailey Avenue, 79 Brunswick, 69 Bennett Village Terrace, and 73 Rogers Ave.
"The powder, particularly the fentanyl right now-- even a mere contact with that could be fatal. That's a new danger that is involved," said Sheriff Tim Howard.
