Over 100 bags of the lethal drug fentanyl that has been claiming the lives of thousands around the U.S. were found in a 13-year-old’s bedroom after he died from the substance. The boy collapsed while at school, the Sports and Medical Science Academy in Hartford, Connecticut.

The boy died two days later at the hospital due to a fentanyl overdose, police said. The school was shut down and searched after two more students reported dizziness and were taken to the hospital for evaluation.

CBS News reports “drug tests later confirmed that fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that’s up to 100 times stronger than morphine – was in a substance located near the students. Authorities believe all three came in contact with the substance at the same time.”

While the school was in lockdown, drug detecting canines found around 40 bags of fentanyl at the school. When the boys room was searched later after police obtained a search warrant, an astounding 100 bags of fentanyl were discovered.

The drugs were packaged the same and with the same identifying stamp as the bags found at the school. “There isn’t any evidence to suggest that anyone besides the teen, who has not been named, brought the bags of fentanyl to school, officials said.”

“They are confident that the same fentanyl found in his bedroom was what caused his overdose” reports CBS. The bags were collected and given to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for evaluation.

The DEA confirmed the drugs had an “extremely high purity level” at 58 to 60%. Hartford police sergeant Chris Mastroianni said at a town hall meeting earlier this week that the bags found were “about 50 times stronger than an already very strong bag of fentanyl.”

The bags will undergo further testing including fingerprint and DNA testing with the hopes of finding the individual(s) who gave the teen the deadly drug. CBS reports a person of interest who has a history with narcotics and the house where the drugs were found has been identified by police, but that person is not a suspect at this time. The boy’s mother has been fully cooperative with the investigation said police.

    The SMSA high school was closed for several days after the student’s death because there were sections of it that had to be decontaminated. It is thought that the two boys who became ill had merely come into contact with traces of the fentanyl. The boy who dies collapsed in a gym class.

    The Fentanyl was not given to the kid nor anyone else. He had to buy it or is distributing it. There is a big difference. When will people wake up? Since the President or his CO HORTS won’t shut down the border to keep this garbage from coming across we, The people The Citizens may have to hid out at the border and start playing target shooting with the moles. I am just sick of it. And the Layers that defend these POS, should get the same.

    I also would like to know why there is no way to share here? How are those that don’t care to look for things and only stumble on to something.

    This is so sad. Why and how would a 13 year old boy have access to 140 bags of this killer drug? We MUST close the southern border to Mexico. This should be a non-political commitment to save the lives of our citizens.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
