Twenty-seven-year-old Dylan Rodas of Cumberland is facing federal drug charges in connection with a major drug bust.
The U.S. attorney's office says over 660-thousand Adderall pills containing methamphetamine were seized in a court authorized search of two locations in Cumberland earlier this year.
Addressing the burgeoning trafficking of methamphetamine into Rhode Island and New England, United States Attorney Zackery Cunha commented that, “…for a long time, we here in New England have been spared the full impact of methamphetamine, a drug that has blighted lives in so many other communities across the country. Those days, I regret to say, are over, with meth increasingly making its presence felt in Rhode Island and across the Northeast.” Mr. Cunha added, “This prosecution, which involves the seizure of what I can only term industrial scale quantities of meth, is a wake-up call that we cannot be complacent- that we cannot treat meth as a problem that happens elsewhere.”Investigators say it's the single largest drug bust of counterfeit Adderall pills in the U.S. and largest seizure of meth in New England
So far there has been no information released about the arraignment.
