Record marijuana bust nets 22,000 pounds in south Texas
    #14552729 - 06/02/11 10:53 PM (3 years, 1 month ago)

June 2, 2011

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Tons of marijuana is off the streets in a major drug bust that has been months in the making. The smugglers method of moving the drugs was tanker trucks.

Investigators say the trucks moved millions of dollars worth of marijuana in plain sight on freeways. It all started with a bust in south Texas, which led to two Houston-bound tanker trucks full of pot being stopped in El Campo.

So far, three people have been arrested in connection with this massive drug smuggling operation. Federal investigators say it's one of the largest drug seizures they have ever made during a holiday weekend. It may be just the tip of the iceberg.

Federal investigators hit the jackpot -- a record 22,000 pounds of marijuana worth $10 million seized during an elaborate international drug-smuggling operation. Authorities say the drugs were hidden deep inside two tanker trunks.

"These tankers were rigged so that if you tested them, some product or air would flow out of them so law enforcement wouldn't get suspicious," explained Michael Booker, a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security.

While the trucks carrying the marijuana look like they belong to a legitimate Mexican gas transport company, authorities say they are clones. According to court documents, "it appeared they had been sprayed with mud to appear dirty."

Booker said, "Make it look like they had gone on dirt roads, but unfortunately the way they put the mud on they didn't muddy up any of the actual mud flaps. So the mud flaps were clean, which also allowed us to have some suspicion."

Three people, two drivers and a third person hired to be a lookout, were arrested after a six-month investigation. According to court documents one of the alleged drivers was supposed to get paid $10,000 and another stated he was to receive $15,000.

"Summer is heating up and so is the narcotics transportation business," said Booker. "They are trying to get their product in to move it, to make a profit, and obviously we are doing our best to stop that."

It's unclear if this drug-smuggling operation is connected to the Mexican drug cartels. Authorities tell us they haven't been able to connect all the dots yet. They are anticipating more arrests.

Just think, if that shipment was worth 10 million, that means that 10 million is going to the cartels. Parasites sucking our country dry. A day without a mexican my ass

Brick weed is slowly being phased out anyway. At least in my area.
Same reason pot dealers went to coke.
Who would want to hold a shit load of cheap product if you're charged on weight.
The bust does suck for the obvious reasons, but it's good if it is from Mexican cartels.

Yep. And it's sprayed with poison by our protecting federal government before the dumb mexicans blow each others brains all over the stuff.

the record in houston is like 50 tons. i believe it was the largest single marijuana bust in US history. and that didnt stop the flow at all. not even any perception of a change on the streets after that happened. this was in high school, when I still payed attention to schwag. the only thing that slowed down mex weed was hurricane Ike. that actually increased the price of a one ounce to a whopping $60 for a couple years. now I believe the price has resettled at its formerly comfortable $40, but I don't even have a connect :lol: who would want one

Honestly a bust like this in Houston isn't going to affect the market anywhere. There is thousands of tons of shwiggity lyin around Houston. If someone bumped up their shwag price to 150 a zone it's cause they're sheisters.

Get on craigslist in a medical state and you'll find dudes willin to send you ounces of dank for that price.

Shwag for 150 an oz because there was a 10 ton bust in Houston?  Lolz

It's pretty fucking dry, IDK if it's hoarding, or what because this shipment wouldn't even have made it here yet (WI)...:shrug:

Sheisters!
