During a search of their Avondale home in Arizona, News12 NBC Phoenix reported that detectives had arrested Francisco Delgado (age 26) and Jose Molina Quinonez (age 21).
Phoenix Police Department Sergeant. Brian Bower stated that there was too many pills for him to count. Instead, the department calculated the amount of pills by determining their weight.
“That matrix came out with it just under 1 million pills,”Bower stated this to the local news station.
Bower explained how Bower achieved the record-setting seizure.
“What really led up to this … massive historic seizure was the fact that we had our detectives with the Drug Enforcement Bureau doing excellent work looking for small-time dealers and it leads to the bigger dealers,” Bower explained.
After the process, enough evidence was gathered to warrant a search warrant against Avondale.
