raid by law enforcement agencies in southwest Ohio has seized more than 40 pounds of fentanyl – enough to “kill the entire population of Ohio” several times, according to federal, state and local authorities. Authorities said Wednesday that officers also arrested three people and seized 1,500 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 500 grams of suspected heroin, several firearms and over $30,000. They said the raid took place last week.
“Twenty-kilograms (44 pounds) of fentanyl is enough to kill the entire population of Ohio, many times over,” said Vance Callender, Homeland Security Investigations special agent in charge for Michigan and Ohio. The three suspects were identified as Shamar Davis, 31; Anthony Franklin, 30; and Grady Jackson, 37, of Dayton, Ohio. They face charges of possession with intent to distribute 400 or more grams of fentanyl as as well as firearms possession charges.
