(CBS) Law enforcement officers in Virginia have seized enough fentanyl to kill 14 million people busting a massive three-state drug ring as part of what they called Operation Cookout. Thirty-five suspects were arrested and four others are on the run. This opioid crisis is not an issue that is happening someplace else or to someone else. Its happening right here in Norfolk said G. Zachary Terwilliger U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. In total authorities seized over 30 kilograms of fentanyl 30 kilograms of heroin five kilograms of cocaine and over $700000. Its the largest drug takedown in Virginia in 15 years. They also seized roughly 24 firearms including an AK-47. Were not talking about $500 and $600 deals were talking hundreds of thousands of dollars Terwilliger said. You know $20000 in the trunk of somebodys car in a gym bag you know behind a local restaurant.
