The US Drug Enforcement Administration reported that a raid on a home in a sedate New York state neighborhood uncovered enough fentanyl to kill 2 million people.

Federal agents found five kilograms (just over 11 pounds) of fentanyl and six kilograms (13.2 pounds) of heroin Friday when they raided a fentanyl mill operating out of a home in Ardsley, the DEA said.

People - Raid - Drug - Charges

Five people who were arrested during the raid are facing several drug charges.

Braulio Mata, 31; Jose Garcia, 44; and 20-year-old Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe were charged with conspiracy and drug possession. Another suspect, Ramon Aracena Alfe, 47, is facing a possession charge. The fifth person, 32-year-old Dionell Duarte Hernandez, has been charged with possession and resisting arrest, officials said.

Neighbors - House

As one might suspect, the neighbors were clueless about what was occurring in the house.

“It’s shocking, it’s shocking and kind of scary and awful all at the same time,” said a neighbor.

People - Custody - Facing - Charges - Conspiracy

Five people are now in custody and facing charges ranging from conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl to resisting arrest.

Braulio Mata, Jose Garcia, and Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe lived at the house.

Years - Nothing

“I have been here for 11 years, nothing like that ever happened before.”

Neighbors tell us that they didn’t know their neighbors well but they said that they started renting the house a few months ago.

Resident - Lot - Cars - Drug - Mill

One resident told us that they did notice a lot of cars and coming and going but never suspected a large drug mill was operating on their street.

Border crisis deniers might have difficulty minimizing the impact of this toxic opioid on America’s population of young adults. For example, Arizona and other southwestern states bordering Mexico are a hot spot in the nation’s fentanyl crisis.
