HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind.–Nearly $2 million worth of narcotics were seized during a traffic stop in Hendricks County Monday afternoon.
State police say they stopped a Chrysler van on I-70 near Clayton for “unsafe lane movement” around 1:30 pm. After speaking with the both passenger and driver, they searched the van.
During that search, police say they found 134 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 90 pounds of fentanyl “concealed in the cargo area.”
The Drug Enforcement Agency says a single two milligram dose of fentanyl is lethal for most people. 90 pounds is enough to kill more than 20 million people.
Troopers identified the driver as Ester Osegueda, 32, of Porteville, California. They have identified the passenger as Adam Lopez, 27, of Tulare, California.
Both Osegueda and Lopez were taken to the Hendricks County Jail on charges of dealing narcotics, which is a level 2 felony.
