Fentanyl pills disguised in candy bags seized at Los Angeles airport

Authorities on Wednesday seized about 12,000 suspected fentanyl pills that were found packaged in several bags of what appeared to be candy at Los Angeles International Airport.

In a news release, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department narcotics detectives and DEA agents assigned to the airport responded to a TSA screening area around 7:30 a.m. after a person tried to go through with bags of candy and other snacks.

Authorities found the pills inside boxes of Sweetarts, Skittles and Whoppers.

The suspected trafficker fled but has been identified, authorities said.

Authorities have recently warned that drug dealers have been disguising fentanyl in candy wrappers and manufacturing them in rainbow colors in order to disguise them from authorities.
