Pierce County deputies arrested a woman suspected of dealing fentanyl, following a two-month investigation.

Deputies arrested the 25-year-old woman Tuesday night in South Hill, after they found her driving a stolen car. They served a search warrant at her apartment in Auburn, where they found 3,000 fentanyl pills, 300 Xanax pills and $9,000 in cash.

Puget Sound agencies have been working to tackle a fentanyl crisis, and in the last two years have arrested 16 conspirators in a multi-state fentanyl and methamphetamine distribution ring. In their investigation, officers seized guns, drugs and 100,000 fentanyl pills.

The woman was booked into jail for unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
