Fentanyl has become a common drug on the streets and with Halloween coming up parents are concerned and aware of them

EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - The El Centro Police Department (ECPD) officers arrested a suspect that had around 9.1 grams of pure fentanyl, 5.5 grams of methamphetamine and over 300 counterfeit Oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.

Cases of fentanyl are increasing and some parents are concerned that this drug can come knocking on their door this Halloween.

Over weekend the ECPD took over social media to warn parents about the drug and how their mission is to keep it away from the streets.

According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, fentanyl is being disguised as rainbow candy that come in different sizes and colors.
