In the news: 44 pounds of meth seized in South Sound bust
Wonder what was happening at border crossing inspections during the almost 3 years these folks were under investigation. Do the good guys who made the local bust notify the good guys at the border about the weak links in their process?
“Starting in February 2014, a DEA agent began investigating a drug ring that was sending large shipments of methamphetamine from Mexico via Arizona and California to Western Washington.”
Love to see newspeople ask:
If 44 pounds of meth was seized in South Sound this week- how much meth did these folks move into the Puget Sound area since February 2014?
Were federal authorities at the border notified of this ongoing investigation?
Did the meth traffickers get fast track screening at the border so as not to disrupt this ongoing investigation?
If the meth traffickers were given a pass at the border- would that have tipped them off as to the investigation- or would that have been seen as standard protocol?
Imagine that LE authorities observe a shoplifter or bank robber in action. Instead of going in to make an arrest they back off and conduct an investigation that goes on for almost 3 years. What if they applied the same tactic Re: crimes involving arson, terrorism, child abuse, DUI, etc.
I know, I know- It takes time to build a case against the really big drug traffickers.
This time next year- will there be any shortage of meth from Mexico? Has any city, county or state jurisdiction been able to cleanup their drug problem using these methods?
Heroin traffickers moved product past the US Dept. of Homeland Security and into Delaware during this “years-long” investigation:
Good news- June 25th, 2015
Bad news- July 14th, 2015
December 13, 2016
But wait- the press told us the growing heroin empire on the Treasure Coast was shut down back in June of 2015?
Local law enforcement agencies may benefit when the US Dept. of Homeland Security fails to keep heroin out of the US:
