Fentanyl and Assortment of Other Drugs Seized by MCSO From Two Guadalupe Homes

The SWAT team of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Phoenix conducted a search on two houses in Guadalupe that were believed to be involved in drug trafficking. As a result of the operation, a variety of illegal drugs were confiscated.

In July of 2023, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office’s HEAT unit, which stands for High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Enforcement Action Team, commenced their investigation into the residences.

Investigators discovered a connection between the two residences, which were situated in close proximity to Frank Elementary School along Interstate 10 and West Guadalupe Road. Investigators witnessed a common group of customers who frequented both homes in what they believed were purchases of illegal substances.

MCSO obtained search warrants for both residences and a SWAT team was deployed to conduct the searches.

The following was seized from the Guadalupe homes: One gram – 1g of methamphetamine
– 260 fentanyl pills
– 9g of heroin, sectioned into 36 individual portions to be sold
– 6g of marijuana
– one rifle
– one pistol

Maricopa Sheriff Rus Skinner said, “I’d like to thank HEAT detectives for their unrelenting efforts to get dangerous drugs off the streets and out of our neighborhoods. We want our community members to be able to live in a safe environment and our children to grow and learn in a safe and healthy space so they can thrive and reach their full potential.”
