Highlands County police in central Florida seized a Shipment of several drugs from a Hispanic motorist, including the powerful fentanyl painkiller and in an amount capable of killing nearly 40,000 people, according to the sheriff’s office.

 An agent gave Rubén Ramírez-Rivera a 40-year-old stop while driving this Sunday in Avon Park because the car he was driving lacked a light.

When the officer was talking to the driver and reviewing his documents, another officer approached with a police dog who detected the presence of drugs in the vehicle, so he proceeded to review it.

According to what Ramírez-Rivera’s car was found to be like a drug supermarket.

Police found 554 grams of heroin, 450 grams of cocaine, 99.6 grams of the opioid fentanyl, 975 oxycodone pills, 107 Xanax pills, 90 vapers with THC (the active component of cannabis) and a loaded firearm.

“A dose of 2 to 3 milligrams of fentanyl is considered fatal for one person, so there was enough drugs to kill 40,000 people using a 2.5 milligram dose,” the county sheriff’s office said in a statement released on Monday.

The total value of all seized drug is $120,000, of which $15,000 corresponds to fentanyl.

 The driver was arrested and charged with eleven counts of drug trafficking, possession of weapons in the commission of a crime and others.

Ramirez-Rivera is imprisoned in the county jail without bail.
