Police make historic marijuana seizure [AZ]

Police make historic marijuana seizure
May 2, 2005 glendalestar.com

Glendale police narcotics detectives made the largest drug bust in the history of the department last week.

After executing a search warrant at a Glendale home in the area of 91st and Glendale avenues April 21, along with four other homes in Phoenix and Avondale, they uncovered 8,000 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $4 million.

In addition, they found one half a kilogram of cocaine with a value of $7,000 along with a combination of 30 handguns and assault weapons, $100,000 cash and seized five vehicles.

Six suspects were taken into custody and investigators are withholding their names with the hope the men, four of which are undocumented immigrants, will aid in additional information.

Police not only praised the significance of the seizure but also how efficiently the search warrants were executed and no one was injured given the amount of firepower the suspects involved had in their possession. One of the weapons taken from the Glendale home was an M-16 with a grenade launcher attached.

Detectives conducted surveillance on the operation for two days before moving in, which is rare in that drug trafficking investigations can often take months of work before a bust.

Police said the Glendale home was about six months old and in a newer subdivision where homes are being constructed and children play.

Investigators said there was limited activity at the residence, likely indicating it was being used mainly for storage and packaging of the marijuana.

Police said residents should keep an eye on unusual activity, like a gas meter that isn't hooked up, garbage cans not out regularly, different vehicles at the home and increased traffic. Citizens can call Glendale's non-emergency narcotics tip line at (623) 930-3353, where they can provide information for investigators.

Just a little over 24 hours after the bust, police said they received a tip from the Phoenix Police Department drug bureau. A task force made up of Glendale and Drug Enforcement Agency officials served a search warrant at about 10 p.m. April 22 at a Glendale residence and two Peoria homes.

Police said 5,000 pounds of marijuana was found along with $500,000 in cash.
