Fen­tanyl worth $1 mil­lion con­fis­cated

Pawtucket Times - - REGION/OBITUARIES -

OLD LYME, Conn. (AP) — Con­necti­cut State Po­lice say they seized one kilo­gram (2.2 pounds) of the pow­er­ful opi­oid fen­tanyl with a street value of $1 mil­lion dur­ing a traf­fic stop.

Po­lice dis­cov­ered the nar­cotics dur­ing a stop on In­ter­state 95 in Old Lyme on Wed­nes­day. Of­fi­cials say they stopped the car be­cause they re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that it con­tained il­le­gal nar­cotics.

Po­lice say the 26-year-old driver and his 28-year-old pas­sen­ger, both of Prov­i­dence, con­sented to a ve­hi­cle search. Of­fi­cers say they found the drugs in the car with the help of a po­lice dog.

Gabri Dar­lin Javier-De­la­paz and Al­cides Rafael GomezAlba were charged with pos­ses­sion. They were sched­uled to ap­pear in Su­pe­rior Court in New Lon­don on Thurs­day. It's not clear if they have lawyers.
