The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced on Thursday that it took nearly one million fentanyl pills off the streets in the biggest fentanyl drug bust in history.

The bust occurred in Inglewood, California, early this month, during a raid of a southern California home. The home owner is tied to Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, the DEA reported.

HIDTA 48, along with the DEA New York Division Tactical Diversion Squad and Hawthorne Police Department, in May began investigating a Los Angeles-area drug trafficking organization believed to be linked to the Sinaloa Cartel. During the investigation, DEA agents identified Southern California narcotic couriers and stash house managers who were responsible for distributing narcotics to other drug distributors in the area.

A federal search warrant was executed on July 5, 2022 at an Inglewood residence resulted in the seizure of approximately 1 million fake pills containing fentanyl. The seized fake pills were intended for retail distribution and have an estimated street value of $15 to $20 million dollars.

“This massive seizure disrupted the flow of dangerous amounts of fentanyl into our streets and probably saved many lives,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner. “The deceptive marketing coupled with the ease of accessibility makes these small and seemingly innocuous pills a significant threat to the health and safety of all our communities. A staggering number of teens and young adults are unaware that they are ingesting fentanyl in these fake pills and are being poisoned.”

The pills seized were produced in Mexico and designed to resemble brand-name prescription medications such as Oxycontin, Percocet, Vicodin, Xanax, and Adderall.
