Unraveling Recent Seizures in Southern California

Seizures in Southern California

As violence, insecurity, with a glimmer of hope consume Michoacan, several hundred miles away, and Chino Antrax awaits extradition from Holland to San Diego, across the Atlantic, the integral parts of the business remain.  Sometimes lost in the headlines, substantial or interesting seizures continue, in timeless fashion, with shipments of product moving north, and money and weapons heading south.

January 22nd 2014:  In the mid afternoon a 52 year old San Diego man was stopped as he attempted to cross the San Ysidro border into Tijuana. He was driving a 2011 Sienna minivan, and carrying 17 high powered weapons parts, and 64 boxes of ammunition, about 2500 bullets total, and seven magazines.  He was placed into the custody of Homeland Security, with an immigration hold.  That same week in Tijuana, a man linked to Caballeros Templarios, a weapons broker and buyer for the troubled cartel, was arrested Manuel Alejandro Zuniga Garcia, 'El Pelon'.  He made statements to the PEPOS (Special Police for organized crime), saying in essence he was in Tijuana to buy weapons to take to Michoacan, coordinated by his two uncles, one in the States, and on in Michocan.  He was in Tijuana to receive a shipment of weapons.

January 23rd 2014: Last week at the San Clemente U.S Customs & Border Patrol checkpoint, between Tijuana and Los Angeles, officers intercepted 670 pounds of cocaine, from a 2011 Hyundai Elentra.  It was nearly 1:30 am when the compact car rolled into the station, likely eerily vacant, with piercing floodlights and tired agents, on their third cup of stale coffee from the break room.  The man, 54 was dressed in a suit and tie, which is odd for the hour, and after discovering he was not a US citizen, as claimed, he was pulled over for inspection.

K-9 units alerted on the car, and officers pulled out 45 cardboard boxes, each neatly packed with wrapped kilos of cocaine, 304 in all. His name was not released, and he was turned over to the DEA.  The San Clemente station is known to be open sporadically, perhaps between the late hour, and the haphazard details of a large shipment, it could be speculated that someone assumed the stop would be closed.  Yet, there was no front car, or run through to check, on the smugglers part?  At that late hour?  A suit & tie works for early morning, or evening, even midday…yet stands out at 1:15 AM.  Likely  nothing will ever be known about the driver, or his case, or the origin of the seized drugs.  It is very possible this wasn't a random interdiction. 

January 28th 2014: Less then a week later, an Uzbakistan national, permanent US resident was stopped, driving a car carrier, northbound.  National Guard members, after a K-9 alert, performed an X-Ray inspection, which led the Guardsmen to irregularities in the bumpers of two Acura MDX's on the back of the carrier.  The bumpers held 49 bundles of cash, with markings indicating amount, and covered in silver duct tape.  The packages held 1.5 million in US currency.  The money, the cars, and the driver were all detained and held. 

The same day in Pine Valley, interstate 8, 15 pounds of cocaine were seized from the frame of a vehicle.

Two days later, USBP patrolling the I-5, stopped a vehicle headed south, and discovered a 39 year old Mexican national, with a valid Visa.  Also, carrying 10,000 in his pockets, and 49,900 in a jacket, and a bag in the vehicle.  He claimed the 10,000, as his, denying knowledge of the other stash.  He was remanded to the custody of the Department of Homeland Security.  



Are there links and interconnected webs of commerce, investigations, and alliances?  Certainly.  I cannot begin to unravel them here, leave the readers to their own conclusions.  Is the Uzbakistan national and the 1.5 million, headed north linked to organized crime in Mexico, and the US? Or different syndicates at play?  Money from down the coast, prostitution, drugs, stolen goods, headed to Russian bosses in LA?  Or was it related to drug sales and Mexican TCO's?  Going to LA to be laundered, or transported south, via ship or plane?  Invested in property?Theres rumors in San Diego, and unofficial statements pertaining to the triple murder of three San Diego young adults, in late December.  Two were found murdered on Christmas Eve, at a mall, in a violent late night shooting.  A brother of one of the victims, and fiancee of the female victim was found weeks later, decomposing in the trunk of his Camry.  Italians from Utah with no record, who worked in a small Italian restaurant, owned by family members, nonetheless drugs and money are the whispers.  

Blood, drugs, money, investigations, arrests, articles, it all wears on in a tireless, endless, existence, for everyone involved.  A civil war rages in Michoacan, the crystal crosses the border, and an addict burglarizes a home, or steals a car, high on meth.  7.62's rip through birthdays, school clothes, flesh, bone, and leave nameless victims laying in a burning state.  Prices rise, spokesmen and women give statements to the press, people get their 35 years, and final words to the District judge.  And, it all means nothing, or everything, dependent upon your perspective.

  13. Those little busts are no big deal. That's everyday stuff.

    The real story is this whole Dodge/Hyundai thing. Must be photoshopped, and if so, why? Could there be a South Korean/Detroit connection? Please investigate.

  14. saudi arabs making hay of the rusians right for the olympic season,payback for the rusian taking sides with syria and not allowing the proven allies of the saudis to take over syria, for whatever reason. al qaeda's links to the saudis have been proven and while widely debated, most people know the links, including the pirating global investors and vulture capitalists of every persuation. narco-loving trolls and internet contrabandistas, their opponents and fans are still trolls, the real contrabandistas engaged in narcomenudeo, are just little pawns, made fall guys for the police forces to show some work, the real big drug traffickers almost never get caught and if they get caught, they never get punished, cockroaches may come and go, they do not matter and are of no consequence,much less elitist trolls that think too much of themselves especiall when they compare themselves with other "trolls" while trolling the net on their own mamas' computers...

  15. if carlos hank gonzales' family owned amado carrillo fuentes planes,used to traffic drugs into the US, and jorge hank rohn and his brother are carrying on the family name and business, it is no wonder amado's family is still trying to do business, the bosses always take most all the money,and put it in foreign banks to never see it again. no prosecution of the hank rohn family ever, and it was tons and tons of dope with hundreds of planes...

  17. You guys need to actually visit Mexico sometime. Cars outside the USA are built differently and that car the "attitude" is just a Hyundai Accent sold by Dodge for the Mexican market.......

  18. american cars made with foreign parts,all of them, it is cheaper to import through mexican ports and move overland through mexican highways (CHINESE OWNED), all of which facilitates the trafficking of heroin fron the afghanistan and meth precursors to process in mexico and move to the US.
    that is why cacaine traffickers are suffering pesrecution,they were working too much for themselves and not producing enough $$$ for the real owners of the country, and US banks found the mexicans taking their hardly earned cash to other banking institutions,cayman islands, panamanian or european banks.
    the mierda accords that brought 1.5 billion US dollars worth of help to the mexican government and for american middlemen to steal half of it before the mexicans stole their share,(the rest was all spent on maruchan for the troops), the mierda accords were implemented to keep the mexican government silent about the US government planes loaded with tons of cacaine that crash landed on the yucatan peninsula or were caught by the mexicans, recent other drug plane scandals like the one caught and burned in venezuela, and the televisa work vans caught in guatemala; there is treatment for crackheads and two dollar crack hos,who are blamed for the drug addiction epidemics on the US and around the world,but there is not even a word about the rich vulture capitalists addiction to money, whatever its procedence,engaging in corruption of even our most beloved leader of the comunist world, fidel castro ruz,who put his baby brother raul in charge of the cuban air force to move the cacaine to mexico and florida with the hermanos al rescate,after giving el che to felix "el gato" rodriguez to assassinate in bolivia, money is better than socialism, OK.
    FELIX "EL GATO"RODRIGUEZ aka max gomez etc, recently accused of ordering and supervising the torture and murder of Enrique "Kiki" Camarena the famous DEA agent,the martir of the drug war widely honored by the same US agencies that ordered his murder,cia, nsa, etc for meddling with their business and money,i hope someone shines a very bright light on the dirty deeds of FELIX "EL GATO" RODRIGUEZ, aka MAX GOMEZ before he dies,to give him a chance once more of protesting his patriotistic adherence to "the following of orders" from superiors that did not know what was going on,maybe they didn't habla espanol and he no habla espiki. american US presidents seem to have a predilection for unsavory characters of ill refuse, richard nixon and bebe rebozo's frecuent visitings come to mind, george hw bush youthful visitors at midnight on te white house and his loving relationship with felix rodriguez from before the kennedy assassination, really leave no doubt that there is something there. felix rodriguez threatened dea agent berrellez with a lawsuit for blowing the whistle on his ass,berrellez instructed rodriguez to fucking bring it on, Felix "el gato" Rodriguez chickened out on berrellez, cuban devils have nothing on mexican devils,especialy when those mexican devils work for the good guys,thanks to Hector Berrellez for finally growing a pair!!!

  19. Besides the mandatory truck stop, when does the SC inspection point actively look in cars? I've had to slow and stop before, but they were just peaking inside SUV's and vans, and waving them through. Usually traffic's 85mph right on through.

  20. is there a chance that the people riding the trains of death are being seduced into it by the private corrections corporation of america to keep its prisons full of detainees? when the US government pays 200.00 usd per prisoner, it is hard to let go of the opportunity to get that money. Well placed legislation by lobbyists with well paid legislators to sponsor and invest on the enterprise cooks it all, nothing like welfare for the rich.
    that would be some good trafficking to catch for the american people's security,safety and progress, if only the US press were not so influenced by their own "chayotazos" (payments to look the other way), little busts like this make us very happy, and that is what they are suppossed to do, making everybody think that the war on drugs i finally achieving some success...
