Reporting from Lynn, Matt informs us that a significant drug bust has taken place. According to the US Attorney, the quantity of drugs confiscated is enough to cater to the entire state, amounting to an estimated 10 million doses.
The investigators have shared images of the recovered narcotics, including pills shaped like heart candies, which were revealed to be fentanyl and meth. This drug operation was being conducted in the basement of a residence on Broadway in Lynn, where children were also living on the first and second floors. The US Attorney emphasizes that this seizure is one of the largest in Massachusetts history to occur at a single location.
This recent development, in which drugs are marketed in the form of candies, is both perplexing and alarming. The investigation has identified Emilio Garcia, also known as “Six,” as the leader of this operation, who, along with two other men from Lynn, is currently in custody. All three individuals are scheduled to appear in federal court next week..
