(The AEGIS Alliance) – The Pasadena Police Department revealed a massive drug seizure on Saturday where greater than 300,000 fentanyl pills and 2 kilos of cocaine, along with an unserialized ghost gun were confiscated.
The bust makes the overall quantity seized by the department this year, “in collaboration with local and federal agencies,” to approximately 708,500 fentanyl tablets and 31.5 kilos of cocaine, authorities said in a news release.
“The Pasadena Police Department urges community members to call 911 immediately if they encounter fentanyl in any form,” authorities noted.
A gun with no serial number, typically known as a ghost gun, is prohibited to own, as the absence of an identifying serial number makes tracking it extremely difficult.
The 328,000 fentanyl tablets are in various colors that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and various other law enforcement agencies are referring to as “rainbow fentanyl.”
Law enforcement agencies assert the candy-colored tablets are made to get kids and youths hooked on them, but experts have disputed those claims.
