FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man is facing multiple charges after being arrested for having about 160,000 fentanyl pills.

Clovis Police and the DEA arrested 35-year-old Uriel Patino at his home in Selma Thursday following a three-month investigation.

They served two search warrants and found the 35 pounds of pills thanks to help from Clovis Police K-9 Bodie.

To put that into perspective, that's a street value of over $1 million worth of pills.

Over two pounds of heroin was also found during the search.

Patino has since been booked into the Fresno County Jail.
