Two Stockbridge men were sentenced for their involvement in a scheme to move two kilograms of fentanyl.
The pair were caught after they unknowingly met with an undercover agent posing as a buyer, according to a release.
They reportedly tried to sell two kilograms of fentanyl, enough to kill 1 million people. One kilogram is enough to kill 500,000 people, according to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.
Following the meeting, the two men were arrested. Georgia agents found “load pistols, as well as two kilograms of fentanyl” in one of the men’s cars.
Investigators believe one of the men sourced the fentanyl from someone in Mexico. Once the product was in hand, he and his partner would try and distribute it, the release said.
Both men pled guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. The man who sourced the drugs from Mexico was sentenced to 12 years and seven months in prison, while the other was sentenced to six years and six months in prison.
Both men will serve five years of probation once released from prison.
