Rhode Island Man Busted In The ‘Single Largest Seizure’ Of Meth Laced Adderall Pills. 660,000 Worth $4.5 Million

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — U.S. Attorney for Rhode Island Zachary Cunha announced Monday the seizure of more than 660,000 counterfeit pills containing methamphetamine.

Dylan Rodas, 27, of Cumberland, was arrested & charged in the case, which authorities believe is the single biggest seizure of fake Adderall pills in the country.

Rodas is charged with possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

The seizure was the result of an ongoing, months-long investigation, according to Cunha. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) conducted searches at 2 locations in Cumberland where they seized approximately 660,500 fake Adderall pills, or 660 pounds & a bucket of 40 pounds of methamphetamine mixture.

“That’s roughly the weight of a V8 car engine or a baby grand piano,” Cunha noted.

The pills have an estimated street value of $4.6 million, authorities said.

Around 1,000 pills contained fentanyl. Authorities also recovered 11 kilograms of methamphetamine powder, 250 grams of crack cocaine, $15,000 in cash & 7 handguns, including 2 ghost guns & 2 guns with obliterated serial numbers.


Rodas has agreed to plead guilty. If the court accepts the deal, he will serve at least 10 years in federal prison.

The bust represents the threat the opioid epidemic poses on the region.

“It is no secret that Rhode Island & New England at large is suffering from an epidemic of opioid abuse & opioid deaths that continues to run into record numbers,” Cunha said.
