VancityBuzz is reporting that "Police in Metro Vancouver have revealed that they have cracked down on a major fentanyl production operation in Burnaby earlier this year. According to RCMP, a counterfeit oxycontin production facility on the 5900 block of 10th Avenue in Burnaby was dismantled following the execution of a search warrant on January 7. In addition to the drug production equipment, police found a number of press stamp dies of “CDN 80,” the same stamp found on true oxycontin tablets. Pills recovered at the site marked with “CDN 80” have been confirmed by lab tests to contain fentanyl."
"RCMP began their investigation into a fentanyl production facility after the Canada Border Services Agency intercepted a pill press at Vancouver International Airport’s air cargo facilities in November 2014." Fake Oxy made with fentanyl. This is a big bust. Fentanyl is killing people.
