60-year-old CA man arrested, possessed enough fentanyl to kill 12 million people

California Highway Patrol officers arrested 60-year-old suspected drug dealer Alfonso Gomez-Santana last week during a traffic stop. Officers found four kilos of fentanyl inside his car, during the stop, and an additional $250,000 in fentanyl pills and 122 grams methamphetamine when searching his home.

Gomez-Santana is being charged with felonies for possessing enough fentanyl to kill 12 million people, with one felony count of sale or transport of a controlled substance and two felony counts of possession of sale with intent to sell.

Fentanyl-related deaths are plaguing this country, and the drug dealer is only facing a maximum sentence of six years and eight months in jail.

“It is unconscionable that someone who has the ability to kill 12 million people is facing just a handful of years in jail,” said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer.

“Every parent in America should be petrified that one day they are going to walk into their child’s bedroom and find them dead because their child thought they were experimenting with recreational drugs, and instead drug dealers sold them a deadly dose of fentanyl,” Spitzer said.

“This is not fear-mongering; this is reality – and if we don’t start strengthening penalties for drug dealers, it’s going to be the reality for you or someone you love.”

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention drug-related overdose deaths topped 100,000 annually for the first time last year.
