Miguel Ramos has been charged with numerous counts of felony possession of controlled substances for sale in the Tenderloin
San Francisco, CA – Today, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced that the District Attorney’s Office filed multiple felony charges against Miguel Ramos for possession with intent to sell fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cocaine. Ramos was arrested by the San Francisco Police Department on October 8, 2022 in the Tenderloin. Ramos was also charged with a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
“The amount of fentanyl on our streets is at crisis levels,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins. “Ramos’ possession of nearly 8 pounds of fentanyl, an amount sufficient to kill more than the entire population in San Francisco, clearly demonstrates that we can no longer allow drug dealers to operate with impunity in our city. My office will work with SFPD to ensure that this individual is held accountable.”
In addition to filing felony charges the District Attorney’s Office will also file a motion for detention to keep the defendant in custody while pending trial. The District Attorney’s Office is seeking detention in cases where defendants pose clear threats to public safety given the lethality of the vast quantities of fentanyl they are accused of possessing, the repeated possession for sale of suspected narcotics, or being armed while possessing fentanyl for sale purposes. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, two milligrams of fentanyl may be lethal.
In this case, Ramos was arrested with 3.5 kilograms of fentanyl (approximately 7.7 pounds) of fentanyl which is enough to kill more than 1.5 million people and other narcotics.
Although, charges have been filed, this remains an active investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) Tip Line at: 1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
Ramos is scheduled to be arraigned on October 12, 2022.
