  • 13 lbs in 2 days

    • This may affect some 4th of July party plans.

      It seems to me like the local law enforcement has been making more large meth and heroin busts lately. There may still be plenty out there but at least some is being stopped.

      Are there realistic actions that could be effective in stopping people from destroying their lives with this and other drugs? What really works?

      • We could quit giving them money every month, so they actually have to work for a living instead of sitting around doing drugs?

        • Giving who money?You don’t get money for being a tweeker last I checked.

          • Yes, but being a tweaker definitely does not exclude them from getting a monthly payment. Just about every tweaker I know is on some form of government assistance.

            • Yeeeppp. “I have a mental disease though?!” ( from doing meth is the secret ) dr…” oh you can’t work because you have a metal disease?” “Well here’s some rx drugs and a monthly SSI check!” Enjoy

      • I agree! They are doing a great job for a small force with a HUGE drug problem to take on.

  • The Entropic Empath

    I predict that the reason there have been many large busts is because there have been many large shipments. I predict there will be many more busts and shipments, and that LEO’s only have the means and personnel to affect about 1% of the total dangerous drugs in Northern CA.

    I also predict that if all the dealers were busted at once, the Courts in CA would collapse and all the jails would be impossibly full, which would bankrupt this broke-ass state…

    California can barely operate the DMV, after all…

  • Yeah send him back. No more illegals

    • Send him back where? He is Native American. He is dark complected and got busted for meth. HE MUST BE MEXICAN. AND ILLEGAL lol Good grief! Where did you come from? please go back….

      • Right like seriously just because someone is tanned skin does not make him Mexican people seriously amaze me

    • [edit] He’s a US citizen. Just because he looks Hispanic doesn’t make him an illegal.

  • How can these people live with themselves, poisoning the ranks of the community.
    Common Ladies, quit giving hikys to these cologne soaked jerks.
    Great Bust!

  • In my 1911 I trust

    The bust yesterday was probably a shipment headed to this guy. One thing always leads to another. This is what our tax dollars are for! Way to go!

  • I am so stoked it is about time. Keep up the work .these busts will put a dent in the needle usage around here. Way to go all Buford pusser.

  • Eldon G. Whitehead

    Great job and keep up the good work all of the Law Enforcement personnel. I tip my hat to each and everyone of you. Get these dirtbags off of the streets and into a dungeon cell for life.

  • Alt Right For Life

    Cordon off entire neighborhoods, go house to house kicking in doors to drug test everyone.

    Turn San Francisco into a prison and send every druggie there forever.

    Druggies are a drag on society, that goes for you weed smokers, too.

    Round them up and ship them to San Francisco so regular people can have normal lives without stoned people everywhere.

    • Sleepy Alligator

      Hey C. H. U. M. P. there you are. I’ve been worried about you disappearing like that. Nah not really. I knew you would resurface eventually.

      • I don’t think this is CHUMP. CHUMP was sometimes funny.

        I’ll bet CHUMP is busy running a feral pit bull rescue and a non-profit CBD farm that benefits epileptic children.

        • Sleepy Alligator

          I think you’re probably right. This person speaks in a similar manner as CHUMP but his/her unrealistic ideas on how to solve societies problems aren’t as off-the-wall as CHUMPS. Maybe this is CHUMPS student or maybe this person just hasn’t graduated to the level of CHUMPS ridiculousness yet. A rookie so to speak.

    • Cam some one say violation of constitutional rights major like seriously let’s just put a video surveillance system up in ur home or daily life seriously I’m sure u have skeltons in ur closet u don’t want aired out

    • Move to Missouri….

  • I’m still shocked when I see “pounds of Meth” in the headlines … it is insane that there is that much demand for that poison.

  • Tony pratt, Sr ain’t no prize either!

    Indian Reservations Have Become Highways For Drug Cartels

    “…large-scale criminal organizations have found havens and allies in the wide-open and isolated regions of Indian country.

    “In the eyes of law enforcement, reservations have become a critical link in the drug underworld. They have helped traffickers transport high-potency marijuana and Ecstasy from eastern Canada into cities like Buffalo, Boston, and New York, and have facilitated the passage of cocaine and methamphetamine from cities in the West and Midwest into rural America.

    “In some cases, outside drug gangs work with Indian criminals to distribute drugs on Indian and non-Indian lands. And on a growing number of reservations, drug traffickers — particularly Mexican criminals — are marrying Indian women to establish themselves on reservations.”
