Due to an ongoing investigation, no further information can be released at this time. The value of the drug if purchased directly form a cartel would be anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000.

“Once the drug hits the streets and cut, the value would increase to approximately $60,000 to $80,000,” said Monroe County Interim Sheriff Curtis Knight in the press release. “This is a significant amount of ICE for this area that did not make the streets.”

In a telephone inquiry, Knight said no arrests have been made.
