Narcotics detectives assigned to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Task Fore (SITF) have arrested 25 year old Miguel Romero Reyes of Seattle, WA.

He has been booked into the Fresno County Jail on felony charges of possession of drugs for sale.  His bail is set at $200,000.
On March 19th, a deputy conducted a vehicle stop on Interstate 5 at Highway 33, near Coalinga.  During the contact with the driver, Miguel Romero Reyes, the deputy discovered he was transporting drugs.  A search revealed 50 pounds of counterfeit M30 pills, which contain Fentanyl.  The 200,000 pills seized have an estimated street value of $600,000.


These extremely dangerous pills have become commonplace during recent years.  They are disguised as Oxycodone Hydrochloride, but contain a high concentration of Fentanyl.  One pill has the potential of being fatal if ingested.


All of the fake pills share similarities in appearance.
- They are blue in color
- They have a capital ‘M’ surrounded by a square on one side
- The other side has the number ‘30’ with a horizontal line directly below it


If the public comes across these pills, they should not touch or ingest them. Leave them in a secure place and make a report to law enforcement immediately.


As a rule, the Sheriff’s Office encourages people to only take medicines prescribed by their doctor in the recommended dosages and obtained from a certified pharmacy.  Make sure the pills in the container match the description listed on the prescription label.  If you are uncertain about any medication, contact your doctor or pharmacist before taking.


The Sheriff’s Office takes all tips seriously.  If you are aware of any type of illegal drug activity, report it anonymously by calling the Narcotics Hotline at 1-800-660-1086 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
