Police: Largest carfentanil bust in Cincinnati history

Our city traces its roots back to the earliest days of the nation, the Cincinnati Museum Center says on its website. The city was founded in 1788; the same year the U.S. Constitution was ratified.

In all the time since Cincinnati's founding, there have been countless arrests for drug trafficking. But none involved seizures of carfentanil and fentanyl greater than the one made a few days ago by the Cincinnati Police Department.

The department said its Narcotics squad searched two locations as part of its investigation and arrest of a 37-year-old man suspected of dealing drugs. In the process, officers said they found approximately 5 pounds of carfentanil, fentanyl, U47700 and heroin.

As our readers might know, carfentanil is an opioid that is 10,000 times more powerful than heroin. Fentanyl is up to 100 times more powerful than heroin. U47700 (also known as Pink) is an opioid analgesic calculated to be three times more powerful than heroin.

A heroin-fentanyl-carfentanil mix resistant to Narcan has been sold around Cincinnati for about a year, an area TV station reports.

During the recent arrest of the alleged dealer, police said they also confiscated approximately $29,000 in cash, a pair of firearms and drug paraphernalia.

The suspected is being held on multiple drug distribution charges at the Hamilton county Justice Center, the news report stated.
