Lon­don po­lice seize record amount of fen­tanyl

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - LOCAL NEWS -

Two peo­ple face charges in the largest seizure of fen­tanyl in Lon­don’s his­tory. Of­fi­cers seized nearly 740 grams of fen­tanyl val­ued at $295,600, 36.5 grams of co­caine worth $3,650 and $13,000 in cash dur­ing a search of a home on Castle­grove Boule­vard in the city’s west end Wed­nes­day night. Fen­tanyl is a syn­thetic opi­oid painkiller that’s 100 times more po­tent than mor­phine and is linked to a grow­ing num­ber of over­dose deaths across Canada in re­cent years. A 43-year-old Lon­don man and a 30-year-old Lon­don woman are charged with two counts of pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing.
