Deadly Drug Disguised in Candy Packaging Seized in Connecticut

Officials are sounding the alarm that children are being targeted by drug cartels with the deadly drug fentanyl. Authorities discovered 15,000 fentanyl pills hidden in candy packaging in Connecticut.

Two Maryland men, Oscar Flores, 34, and Severe Alelar, 25, had been indicted on multiple charges for trafficking fentanyl. The Department of Justice released this information on Friday.

The two men showed an undercover DEA agent a sample of the deadly drug fentanyl disguised as candy and were promptly arrested. After discovering the drugs, the agent told the alleged drug traffickers they need to go elsewhere to get their money.

A local police officer attempted to pull over Flores and Alelar, but they drove through some grass and tried to escape. Other law enforcement officers were able to box them in and the arrests were made.

After searching their vehicle officers found “numerous Nerds candy boxes and Skittles candy bags,” which ultimately contained 15,000 fentanyl pills.

If convicted of all charges, the two men face up to 80 years in prison.

“Trafficking fentanyl is already and undoubtedly a serious offense, but one doesn’t have to stretch their imagination too far to consider how disguising fentanyl pills in children’s candy packaging, as we allege, can result in even more tragic consequences in the community,” said U.S. Attorney Vanessa Avery.

Much of the fentanyl in the United States is being trafficked in through the southern border. With the Biden administration's border security policies in place, crossings of the southern border have skyrocketed.
