Homeland Security and U.S. Postal Service investigators found thousands of dollars worth of fentanyl in a package making its way to metro Atlanta.

Agents say they found the package last month when it was being shipped from California to a P.O. Box in Flowery Branch.

When they opened the package, they found more than 562 grams of fentanyl pills.

The pills are valued at $112,400.

Investigators say the person the package was addressed to does not exist.

Authorities are still searching for the source of the pills.
