Two men have been charged with transporting enough fentanyl through Nebraska to kill more than 10 times the state’s entire population.
Nelson Nicolas Nunez-Acosta, 52, and Felipe Genao Minaya, 47, were stopped by a state trooper while traveling in a tractor-trailer on eastbound I-80 near Kearney, Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol found 118 pounds of fentanyl inside a hidden compartment in the trailer, according to the feds.
The article goes on to state the following:
The synthetic opioid — which is 40 to 50 times stronger than heroin — is so powerful that just 2 milligrams can prove deadly, and reports estimate that the stash seized on April 26 is enough to kill more than 26 million people.
Nebraska has a population of just 1.9 million, according to the US Census.
Nunez-Acosta and Minaya, both of Newark, New Jersey, were charged Wednesday with possessing more than 400 grams of fentanyl with intent to distribute it, which is punishable by up to life in prison, court records show.
