WAYNE COUNTY, Ind. — A woman was arrested in Wayne County after police found $25 million worth of drugs in her car.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department says on Wednesday evening, Flerida Vianey Burgos Gonzalez, of California, was pulled over for speeding in a construction zone on I-70. During the stop, a canine discovered more than 35 pounds of fentanyl — That’s enough to kill millions of people, say police. They also found more than ten pounds of heroin and some meth.
“The drug seizure in this case was the largest in the recent history of Wayne County. Although we believe the destination for the drugs was the east coast, drug trafficking organizations such as this pose a great risk to the public safety in our community,” Sheriff Randy Retter said in a release. “Parts of this shipment could have been easily redistributed in this area.”
Gonzalez is charged with Possession with the Intent to Distribute 1 kilogram or more of heroine and 400 grams or more of fentanyl.
