Fentanyl pills made to look like heart-shaped Valentine's Day candy were among more than 220 lbs. of drugs seized in a bust, federal prosecutors sad.
Prosecutors announced one of the biggest busts in New England history Monday.
Investigators said among the suspected drugs in a home in Lynn, Mass., were heart-shaped pills made to resembled Valentine's Day candy that, when field tested with a TruNarc device, were determined to contain methamphetamine and fentanyl.
Prosecutors described those pills as "particularly pernicious" because "they are not meant to resemble and pharmaceutical and appeared to be designed to resemble a candy," which they said would "facilitate the marketing of these controlled substances to teenagers" and also make them easier to possess.
The investigation started with an overdose death in Salem, Mass., and authorities tracked the drugs to the basement of a Lynn home. Prosecutors said children were living on the first and second floors.
Investigators also found a loaded handgun as well as counterfeit Adderall and Percocet pills.
Thank you Joey B....Here have a heart
Hey, Joe Biden or Osama bin Obama, which ever the one of you are running the country now. China has declared war on us with Fentanyl. What do you think those 20,000+ Chinese illegal border crossers are coming here for ... free fortune cookies? What are you doing about this or is this part of your plans.
Lynn, Lynn, the city of sin...
The Libertarians (such as those at Reason.com) tell me this is a myth and illegal drug makers do not market their product to children, or even make their drugs in such a manner they can be accidentally or ingested by children who think they are candy. Thus there is no need to check your children’s Halloween candy in case there are drugs included in the stash.
Lynn is in a blue state, right?
Only the beginning.
Water supplies. Watch the water supplies.
I came here to say that. I actually lived in that city until I was one year old.
Just because China brought Covid-19 from Wuhan, and didn’t immediately ground flights to the US?
You never come out the way you came in...
