$10 million of crystal meth seized [IL]

Police find $10 million in drugs
Two men charged in 'largest seizure of crystal meth'
May 16, 2005 - abclocal.go.com

May 16, 2005 ? A tip led Chicago police to a very big stash of drugs. Officials say they seized millions of dollars worth of methamphetamine and cocaine.

Police are calling the weekend bust the largest seizure of crystal meth in the city's history -- an estimated $10 million worth. Most of the drugs were found in a southwest side garage.

Acting on a tip, Chicago police staked out a garage in the 5100-block of South Kilpatrick. When a white Nissan Altima pulled out Friday, officers stopped it and found 40 bricks of crystal methamphetamine. Some of it was hidden in a secret compartment behind the front passenger seat airbag. They arrested the driver -- 34-year-old Porfirio Salazar -- who rented the garage on Kilpatrick earlier this year from Mary Koziol -- a wheelchair-bound great grandmother who has owned the property 32 years.

"He wants to rent my garage. No problem. If I can get some added income, I do it. There's a drug bust and they're involved. I just had nothing to do with it," said Mary Koziol, garage owner.

Also stored in the garage was a red Chrysler Concorde that police say also had a trap compartment, this one behind the back seat. Investigators say the Concorde's owner ? 37-year-old Sergio Valdez -- consented to a search of his home in Oak Brook Terrace where police found an additional 21 bricks of crystal meth and 20 kilos of cocaine.

"We believe they came directly from Mexico," said Deputy Supt. John Risley, Chicago Police Department.

Both Salazar and Valdez are Mexican nationals whom police believe were moving drugs for the cartel that identifies it's cocaine by the engraved number five seen on one exposed brick.

Investigators say that unlike most domestically produced methamphetamine, which is home brewed. The product imported from Mexico is mixed in a so-called "super-lab" and would fetch the highest price possible from U.S. users, nearly $350 a gram.

While acknowledging methamphetamine is a growing problem within the Chicago city limits, police say they do not believe all the drugs they confiscated over the weekend were meant for retail sale in the city. Investigators allege Salazar and Valdez are distributors who would arrange to ship the drugs virtually anywhere in the country.

They might just be publicizing it more, but it seems there's a lot of "huge" multi-million dollar busts lately.

So if I have 10 million in drugs I'm renting out some lady's garage...

Why do these news reports never ever match up with what I'm seeing on the street?

In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"
