Men arrested on drug charges after fentanyl found in vehicle

With drug arrests, most people might automatically think of street drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Prescription drugs are a growing problem that can lead to serious consequences as well. A relatively new drug that is regarded as increasingly dangerous and deadly is fentanyl. Those who are dealing with charges related to fentanyl should be cognizant of how prosecutors and law enforcement officials are taking this drug seriously and pursuing those accused of distributing and selling it. For example, two men were recently arrested on the Pennsylvania Turnpike with massive amounts of fentanyl allegedly in their possession.
