Authorities are asking that anyone with any information about Jose Manuel Martinez Garcia or who may have been a victim of this defendant contact Sr. DA Investigator Claudia Herrera at (760) 863-7809 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The DA’s Bureau of Investigation, Major Fraud Unit investigated this case. The Bureau is continuing to investigate numerous EDD fraud-related cases and expects further future arrests in other cases.
The investigation by the Riverside Police Department resulted in the seizure of 21 kilos of carfentanil.
Carfentanil is 100 times more powerful than fentanyl and 10,000 times more potent than morphine. A lethal dose of carfentanil in humans would be at the nanogram level – much smaller than the two milligrams of fentanyl that can kill.
If mixed in with other drugs, the 21 kilos of carfentanil seized could have been enough to potentially kill more than 50 million people.
