Sacramento, CA – Senate Minority Leader Brian W. Jones (R-San Diego) issued the following statement in response to the felony arrest of a fentanyl drug trafficker and seizure of 720,000 fentanyl pills in Alpine, located in Leader Jones’s district.

“Today’s seizure of 720,000 fentanyl pills (158.5 pounds!) is a monumental victory for public safety. By removing these lethal substances from our streets, law enforcement prevented immeasurable tragedy and undoubtedly saved thousands of lives,” said Leader Jones. “Given that it only takes 2 grams of fentanyl to kill the average American, the magnitude of today’s seizure underscores the gravity of the threat we face.”

“I express my utmost appreciation and unwavering support for the immense dedication, bravery, and heroism displayed by our law enforcement officers and agencies during today’s monumental fentanyl bust in Alpine. This operation was extremely dangerous. Their tireless and fearless commitment to protecting our communities from the scourge of illicit drugs is truly commendable,” Leader Jones emphasized.

Senate Minority Leader Jones has been at the forefront of the fight against the fentanyl crisis. Last year, he secured $1 million for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to investigate criminal organizations involved in the distribution of illicit fentanyl, disrupting their operations, and securing criminal convictions. Additionally, Leader Jones coauthored Alexandra’s Law last year as Senate Bill 44, a measure unfortunately killed by Democrat members of the Senate Public Safety Committee. He remains committed to Alexandra’s Law and is coauthoring it again this year as Senate Bill 21.

Senator Brian W. Jones represents the 40th Senate District which includes the Cities of Escondido, Poway, San Marcos, Santee, San Diego City communities of Carmel Mountain Ranch, Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Peñasquitos, Scripps Ranch, Sorrento Valley, and University City, along with the San Diego County unincorporated communities of 4S Ranch, Alpine, Bonsall, Fallbrook, Lakeside, Pine Valley, Rainbow, Ramona, and Valley Center.
