Benicia police intercept shipment of LSD ordered by 15-year-old

BENICIA, Calif. (KRON) – The Benicia Police Department and United States Postal Inspection Service intercepted a shipment containing 50 doses of LSD, police said Wednesday. Police said the drugs were ordered overseas by a 15-year-old resident.

The case was transferred to the district attorney’s office for review. Police have also urged parents to keep an eye on their children’s online purchases.

“Most importantly, we want to inform parents and guardians of this incident,” Benicia police said. “With the ease of technology, illicit drugs are becoming more accessible to everyone. Make sure you are aware of all the transactions your children make online.

Although this case involved LSD, many Bay Area drug busts have taken fentanyl off the streets. The Alameda County Sheriff said Saturday that the county’s narcotics task force recovered 92.58 pounds of fentanyl from the Oakland and Hayward area.

The United States Drug Enforcement Agency said one kilogram of fentanyl has the potential to kill 500,000 people. The drug is usually dispensed by the kilogram.
