Twenty-two pound of fentanyl could make an estimated five-ten million fentanyl pills

YAVAPAI COUNTY, AZ – On June 2nd, 2021, the YCSO K-9 deputy conducting traffic enforcement efforts noticed a truck heading southbound, weaving in and out of traffic and driving recklessly.

The deputy stopped the driver, 21-year-old Daniel Antonio Guzman Perez. During the traffic stop, the deputies noticed some inconsistencies while speaking with the driver. The deputy's dog alerted on the vehicle and inside they discovered several packages of what appeared to be 22-pounds of powdered fentanyl.

“We typically see a lot of fentanyl in the pill form. But this is the second time in less than a month that our K-9 unit has seized powdered fentanyl of this magnitude, which is extremely rare,” said Sheriff David Rhodes, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. “We estimate that this seizure could make an estimated five to 10 million fentanyl pills. So it is extremely concerning that powdered fentanyl is now being trafficked across our state.”

The driver is being charged with transportation of narcotic drugs, sales of narcotic drugs, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia.
