In Gilroy, California, Sacramento police raided a home last Thursday. Police officials are stating that this bust is the biggest this country has ever seen. Over 600 pounds of methamphetamine was found and seized. It took Sacramento’s County Sheriff Department two years to crack down and pull through with this bust. Authorities state that a Mexican cartel was behind this. A a result, eight Mexican nationals were arrested. Penalties for these eight men are going to be determined in federal court; most likely they will be sentenced to life in federal prison.
In my own opinion, this headline of being the “largest” bust in the U.S. history is just to attract the world’s eyes. Why not just go in and stop the nonsense immediately after they have found the lead? Come on, police do not play by the rules all the time so why wait two years to bust eight men? Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
More importantly the methamphetamine that was seized raises a value of 200 million dollars on the street. Between $250,000 and $500,000 a day was being made and transported back and forth between the big players in Mexico. The distribution of the methamphetamine made its way up to Florida, Georgia, New York, Washington, DC and Utah.
This is where I am puzzled. If police officials can put these numbers together and know the locations of the distributions, why not stop them immediately? Why wait two f*$#in years to seize the drugs?
