Cinco, Sinaloa — Elements of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) arrested a man found with 2.6 million fentanyl pills. The arrest took place September 1 on the Mexico International Highway (15) near the town of Cinco.

The bags of pills were discovered stuffed-hidden in various exterior parts of the semi trailer unit he was driving. The pills were found with the help of a narcotics dog who marked the vehicle positive for an illegal substance.

During inspection, authorities found the pills “secured inside metal rails of the lower structure of a Federal Public Service tractor-trailer in which the driver, Alfonso “B”, was arrested.”
