When Oregon police searched the car of a driver found slumped over his steering wheel, they had no idea what they’d find.
Inside the car of Andre Lavell Johnson of Portland was fentanyl – and after police searched his home, they uncovered a total amount of 18lbs, enough to kill 4 million people.
Johnson had previous warrants out for his arrest, and when police startled him awake, he tried to start the car and flee, but they removed him from the vehicle for an inspection.
Inside, they found fentanyl pills “matching the description of currently circulating counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl,” according to police.
They also recovered a stolen firearm from the floor of his car. They recovered $47K in cash, multiple cell phones, and 12 guns in the combined search of his home and car.
Johnson is booked into the Lane County Jail for DUII, driving while suspended, possessing a firearm, and unlawfully delivering a controlled substance.
This needs to stop.
