The situation is a felony, they were arrested on August 24th after Maricopa Sheriff’s deputies found the drugs within duffle bags inside the woman’s vehicle.
Rachel Mitchell, Maricopa county attorney was outraged at this incident, stating that “Two out of five counterfeit pills that come across our border are laced with lethal doses of fentanyl. These drugs are being marketed to our youth in the most proliferous ways and are being produced in candy-like colors.”
