The Pennsylvania State Police announced Thursday that troopers confiscated $7,050,174 worth of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and other prohibited drugs in the second quarter of 2018. From April 1 through June 30, state police seized more than 22 pounds of heroin and more than 21 pounds of the synthetic opioid fentanyl. In its purest form, only a small amount of fentanyl can cause a severe or potentially deadly reaction, putting not only users but also anyone who encounters the drug at risk. Those seized illegal opioids have a combined street value of $1,008,520. Troopers also removed nearly 37 pounds of cocaine and more than 43 pounds of methamphetamines from the highways and communities of Pennsylvania during the same period.
