MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man and woman from Minnesota were arrested in Nebraska last month for their alleged involvement in trafficking fentanyl.

According to the East Central Drug Task Force, the 21-year-old man from Cambridge and 20-year-old woman from North Branch will face trafficking and drug-related charges, and could face additional federal charges.

The task force said 5,000 fentanyl pills and 6 grams of cocaine were seized during the arrest on June 18. The man was apparently under investigation for distributing the pills in Isanti and Chicago counties.

“These drugs are exceptionally dangerous in our communities, especially among young adults experimenting with drug use,” the task force said in a release. “Ingestion of these pills can be fatal, and members of our communities have already died as a result.”

WCCO-TV does not typically name people arrested until they are formally charged with a crime.

Basically drug addiction is a mental illness and drug abuse is just the symptom of usually deeper problems. Until we treat this as a mental illnesses instead of a criminal action and thinking just taking the drug away will solve the problem it will only gets worse. People abuse drug for all types of reason but they do it mostly to escape mental and emotional pain and things like depression and axienty. By just taking the drug away the addict just moves on to something more dangerous until they hit there bottom and wake up and realize if they want there life to change they need to change their lives and how they deal with things in there lives. If you do not hold addicts responsible for there actions then you are also saying they have no way to get better and we know that is just not true. My Dad died at 54 due to alcoholism while my Mom had 45 years in recovery with her drinking and even at the end of her life she still had women from her AA group come over for meetings and coffee.
