Four men face drug charges after the Tucson Police Department raided a midtown drug supply house this week. Police discovered multiple collections of drugs along with illegal weapons, including semi-automatic rifles.
TPD was responding to reports of meth and fentanyl sales at an apartment complex near the intersection of Speedway and Camino Seco. After obtaining a search warrant, officers with K-9s initiated the raid.
Inside they found more than 50-thousand fentanyl pills, an additional one-thousand “rainbow fentanyl” pills, 8 pounds of meth, a half-pound of heroin, more than 1,000 counterfeit Xanax pills, and more than an ounce of cocaine. They also found close to 65-thousand dollars in cash and 15 firearms, including three shotguns, and two assault rifles.
TPD said the one-thousand “rainbow fentanyl” pills were the largest amount found yet at one location in Tucson.
TPD is especially concerned about rainbow fentanyl. Because it is multi-colored, it is known on the street as "skittles" after the popular candy of the same name. TPD believes it is being marketed to children.
