CINCINNATI - Police say they have arrested an international heroin-fentanyl trafficker and seized narcotics with a street value of $100,000.
Dominic Lindsey, 26, was carrying one pound of fentanyl, heroin and U-47700 when he was apprehended by District Three officers during a traffic stop on March 31, police announced Wednesday.
U-47700, an opium derivative, is seven times stronger than morphine, police said.
During a separate investigation of Lindsey, the Regional Enforcement Narcotics Unit (RENU), postal Inspectors and Homeland Security seized another one-pound shipment of U-47700 from Hong Kong, according to police.
Police called it “a significant seizure in light of the heroin and synthetic opiate problem which continues to plague” the Tri-State.
Lindsey has been charged with drug trafficking and drug possession with specifications.
More arrests are anticipated as the investigation continues, police said.
