Just about every week it seems there is some sort of larger drug bust happening in Minnesota. This week was no different as more than 1,500 Fentanyl pills and $4,000 in cash were seized after a traffic stop on Wednesday in Minneapolis' 3rd precinct.
According to a social media post from the Minneapolis Police Department, the 3rd precinct, which was the site of protests and arson after George Floyd was murdered in 2020, had more than 200 calls for service on Wednesday and one traffic stop led to a big bust for Minneapolis Police.
The post from the Minneapolis Police Department said:
There were 220 calls for service logged by dispatch in the 3rd Precinct yesterday.
Between responding to those calls for service, Patrol Officers conducted a traffic stop which led to the pictured recovery.
1,800 Fentanyl pills and over $4,000 cash were taken off the street as a result. The two occupants of the vehicle were arrested and booked for PC Narcotics.
Excellent work being done by our officers in the 3rd.
Fentanyl has been a HUGE issue for years as it only takes a very small amount of pure fentanyl ingested to cause death. Sadly it's also a cheap way for people to high too, and that seems to be fueling the constant drug busts of fentanyl pills.
