Ohio drug bust seizes enough fentanyl to kill nearly 5 million people



COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) – Federal agents arrested four men in south Columbus, who allegedly had enough fentanyl to kill close to half of the state's population.

Alvaro Gasca-Cardoso, Salatiel Ramos-Rajos, Tomas Sandoval, and Alexis Zazueta-Soto have been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine and heroin.

A search warrant served at a home resulted in a DEA task force seizing 10 kilograms of fentanyl, one kilogram of meth and 10 ounces of heroin.

All four suspects are scheduled to appear in federal court Wednesday afternoon.
