A man accused of being a drug dealer, in California, was charged with multiple felonies. This is for having enough fentanyl to kill 12 million people.

60-year-old Alfonso Gomez-Santana is facing one felony count of sale or transport of a controlled substance. He has also been charged with two felony counts of possession of sale with the intent to sell. He could be given a maximum of six years and eight months in prison if he is found guilty.

On Wednesday, the California Highway Patrol pulled the man over during a traffic stop in the city of Fullerton. They found four kilos of the dangerous drug in his vehicle. Then, they went to his residence. There, officers discovered 20 more kilos of fentanyl, $250,000 worth of fentanyl pills, and 122 grams of methamphetamine. A deadly dose of fentanyl can be as little as 2 milligrams.

“Fentanyl is a national pandemic that killed more than 100,000 Americans last year. It’s not going to stop unless we have the tools as prosecutors to hold these drug dealers and drug manufacturers accountable for peddling death,” said DA Todd Spitzer.
