EL PASO, Texas -- Three people were arrested in Juarez Wednesday for possession of about 12,000 fentanyl pills, two firearms, and methamphetamine. They intended to smuggle and sell the items in the U.S., that's according the Juarez Municipal Government.
Officials say a 2008 Toyota Tundra truck with New Mexico license plates was pulled over in Batalla de Chamizal and Batalla de Juárez. Following an inspection, that's when officials found the items in the back seat.
Inside police found a backpack filled with the drugs and firearms.
Police arrested 35 year old Chad R., 31 year old Ashlynn S., both from the United States, and 32 year old Jorge Alejandro G. M.
