DEA leading drug investigation in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- The Drug Enforcement Administration is leading a federal drug investigation at a home in Kennewick. 

Agents were on scene early Wednesday morning at a home on East 25th Avenue. 

The road was briefly blocked off, but has since reopened. 

We're told the investigation is tied to the increase of fentanyl-laced drugs in the Tri-Cities area and throughout eastern Washington. 

The drugs are about 30 to 50 times more potent then heroin and can cause overdoses the first time someone takes it.
