The Almost Dead –
May 25, 2018 – Nearly 120lbs (54kg) of fentanyl, a powerful synthetic painkiller, has been seized by police in Nebraska – one of the largest busts in US history. The drugs, seized last month, could kill over 26 million people, according to estimates by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Police found the fentanyl in a fake compartment of a lorry. The driver and a passenger were arrested. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 30-50 times more potent than heroin. It was the largest seizure of fentanyl in state history, Nebraska State Patrol said in a Twitter post on Thursday.
