Phoenix family discovers 5,000 fentanyl pills inside daughter's thrift store toy

A family in Arizona bought a toy worth far more than what they paid for when they discovered more than 5,000 pills believed to be fentanyl inside the doll.

Phoenix police said Saturday the child's parents bought a Glo Worm from a thrift store in El Mirage, Arizona. The parents were cleaning the toy when they found a sandwich bag filled with the drugs, according to police.

Police said the family immediately reported their discovery and handed the drugs over to authorities.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid often mixed with other illicit drugs like heroin and cocaine that causes euphoric-like effects, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids increased over 16 percent from 2018 to 2019, according to the CDC.

6. Very simple

This is what spies call a dead drop. The fentanyl supplier wanted to supply drugs to a dealer but didnít want to hand them directly to the dealer because the police might see the transfer and arrest both of them. So, they put the drugs in a stuffed animal and donated it to a thrift store that puts items on the shelf quickly. Then they hung out in the store shopping. When the item went on the shelf, they made a phone call to the dealer and left the store. The only problem was someone bought the toy before the dealer got there.

I suspect the supplier is now at risk of being murdered horribly...he had a supplier of his own, and that guy really didnít want his product falling into the hands of the police.
