Officers with the Long Beach (CA) Police Department conducting a traffic stop over the weekend discovered and seized 6,000 Fentanyl pills.

The agency posted an image of the haul on its Facebook page with the caption, "A traffic stop ended w/ the seizure of approx. 6,000 pills of fentanyl & the driver arrested. Fentanyl is incredibly dangerous & even a small amount can be lethal. It can be mistaken for other drugs & it is hard to know how the pills are made."

The post garnered more than 100 comments of support for the agency.

One citizen said, "What a shame that the more you find, the more is to be found. Thank you for your great efforts and successes, LBPD!"

Another said, "That's a lot of lives you saved. Thank you Long Beach Police Department."

Another citizen said, "Wow! Thank goodness this person was caught. I can only imagine the damage that amount of Fentanyl could have caused!"
