Tucson: "Operation Smack Talk" Seizure of Nearly 90 Pounds of White Heroin

Borderland Beat
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)Special Agent in Charge, Doug Coleman, Tuesday announced the seizure of 89 pounds of white heroin and the arrest of seven defendants as part of an 11-month investigation.

The seizure marks one of the state’s largest heroin busts.

The investigation coined, “Operation Smack Talk” targeted a large-scale Mexican heroin trafficking organization responsible for distributing hundreds of pounds of heroin from Tucson to various cities on the west coast.
On June 13, 2014, DEA special agents, with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Tucson Police Department (TPD), executed a federal search on a suspected stash house in Tucson, Arizona where agents found the heroin load hidden inside a bedroom closet.

The heroin was smuggled into Arizona from Mexico utilizing non-factory hidden compartments in several vehicles, and then driven to a residence in the Tucson area. During the course of the 11-month investigation, DEA agents have seized a total of 123 pounds of high-grade heroin with a street value of over $7.5 million. The investigation remains ongoing. Seven vehicles were also seized as well as $300,000 in drug proceeds.

The investigative efforts in “Operation Smack Talk” were led by the DEA Tucson District Office, Homeland Security Investigations in Tucson, the Tucson Police Department, and the Marana Police Department. Complaints were filed yesterday in Tucson federal court charging the defendants with trafficking charges.  All seven defendants were remanded to the U.S. Marshals Service and remain in custody.

Heroin is a highly addictive drug and the most rapidly acting of the opiates. Its street names include Smack, Big H, Hell Dust, and Chiva.

    1. Heroin is many many times more money then cocaine. A kilo of powder is around 15,000$ to 26,000$ depending on where u are in the USA whereas heroin is around 80,000$ n up. U could traffic one kilo of heroin and make more than u would trafficking hundreds of pounds a bud

    2. Cocaine is cheaper than heroin. However, $120k is way overpriced for a ki of heroin. Maybe they're charging people in the SW those prices since its coming through "middle men".

    3. Prices authorities give for a "kilo taken off the street is always fantasy. In Laredo a wholesale key is 38-50 for white and black can always be bought for less. It all depends how dry the market is at the wholesale level, how many units your buying, and if your people brought it across bridge 1 or 2 because mulling it can save 1.5-3k per unit. Sinaloa mountains and Nayarit are an easier move straight up highway 15 so it's probably priced similarly. A kilo of Unstepped on yellow Peruvian or white Columbian straight from the jungle is anywhere from 13.5-22 in Texas at wholesale level.

    Nah. Down here in Rio Grande Valley the gram of china white goes for $65. Use to be $60. By the time it reaches your average user it's already cut to hell hence it being so cheap. $200 a gram that would be straight off the brick and we all know it don't work that way.

  11. If its Mexican made they are getting more sophisticated in the processing of the opium extract,the Black Tar is made from a relatively crude method,it would make sense if they could process in labs with acetylating chemicals etc.The higher the purity the more attractive,addictive,expensive.They must make the Black Tar because it is quicker and less complex i guess but Mexican ingenuity will always out..

  14. @ anon 2:29PM,White Heroin comes from Colombia through Mexico. @ anon 2:48,Its China White...not white china & its mostly used among "White Folks"...like Drs,Lawyers & other white collar junkies who think needles are for low class dopefiends!Anyone involved in this case getting less than 10 yrs is a snitch!

  15. It may be, if it is then the cartels are stepping up the quality. I would rather themlet this through and bust the people who bring in that rotten assed botcholism tainted tar bullshit...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I always wondered why the cartels didnt sell the good shit, hopefully they realized that the columbian and afgan #3 dope is just as easy to make, they can make less of it and make more money off of higher quality, someone hopefully taught these guys to work smarter not harder.. remember that scam of transporting bags of liquid tar inside little puppies,, hopefully those people are sitting in hell right now.

  17. what do you mean, chiva, is it why we are addicted?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yup, heroin brings in higher amounts at a steadier pace.. heroin is resistant to market fluctuations as opposed to the crash and burn scenes of meth and cocaine..after the initial one or two days of partying, with coke or meth, heroin basically becomes like medicine, and it is. It is basically morphine with a little more zing, as soon as the opiate reaches your receptors, the molecules fit like a key of a lock, they then tell your mu receptors to begin pumping dopamine, at an increased rate, more than your brain can do naturally, for a lot longer.. so the brain likes it and craves more, addiction really doesnt have much to do with personality or morals, its purely metabolism...of course no one will hold a gun to your head to stick a needle in your arm...its just a more efficient way, with less waste of the drug..

  22. Yeah, about that more and better, if it is #3, then its number 3 heroin, maybe you are being nationalistic.but afganistan produces more than mexico and columbian combined..so really it doesnt matter, but since forever mexico has been calling that brown codiene, heroin.. so I am not going to argue about national pride...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why do mexicans call heroin chiva, isnt a chiva(s) like a goat or something sort of like that....

    ReplyDelete
  24. the guys here saying that mexican cartels improved on the refining on goma have it right. Mexican dudes are refining the shit to higher purity levels and the result is a white powder, not brown tar. china white is a generic name given to all the heroin of high purity in a powdered form and not any indicator of origin. Also, although some people may be OD'ing from higher quality stuff on the streets, the majority of the OD's in the USA have been attributed to the mixing of heroin use with that of other barbiturates and not the heroin use alone. Quit jumping to conclusions and educate yourselves.

  29. If 4hat one guy was correct in that the chinese down in mich probably sell it to the templars, and if im correct austin is a hub of the templars among others, so thats correct, I dont know about how much 2.2 pounds is but heroin is and will always be the more dominant of all the drugs, they dont call it king Heroin for nothing, yes coke gets you that action jackson cash, but you always go down quicker, heroin has way older networks and is by nature more discrete, it is way more valuable really than cocaine.. actually if it is #3 heroin it disolves pretty easily in water with a little citric acid, a drop or two of lemon juice or citric acid powder, but #4 needs water and heat to break it down, it is stronger but it is a pain in the ass, with #4 it really doesnt need to be shot it is so strong.. thats when you start to see o.d's, they are shooting shit that wasnt cut enough..

  30. Mexican black tar is pretty much codiene compared to high purity white or beige #3, and #4 heroin.. if you get on your tor browser, you can go to your favorite deepweb black market goods site, you can get a good idear how much keys cost.....

  31. White heroin can come from anywhere if processed correctly and to a of it is processed in Mexico and Guatamala. China White is just name it's marketed b/c in NE US bags are stamped and it's known to be primo - but other dealers market their shit w/ same name just like you can buy fake Nike or anything else.

  32. You people saying 28k to 30k .... Those cocaine prices.. $33k to $35k in the chi... I know here in chicago a kilo of heroin wholesale if connected is $60k to $65k... The black folks pay $70k and up..

  34. Big demand for mexican regular, nah that shit isnt heroin, its more like codiene, if by demand you mean that is what you will mostly find is because thats all you can find usually, but if you had the two side by side, and you ask someone to chose,, your gonna be sitting on that tar till you give it away..unless that person is a total dumbass..

  35. Lol, the only real gomeros are sinaloanese, nigga please... have you ever heard of a company called bayer?? Back in the late 1800s bayer brought heroin to the world, its actually a trade name, like coke, a german invention, GERMAN....end of story, same as cocaine, you guys forget who invented this nastiness, the germans have unleashed most frankensteins into the world..

  36. And I wasnt arguing who the real "gomeros" are, and another thing, heroin didnt even exist until late in the 19th century, so trust me, if anyone tells you heroin was being made in mexico before like 1920 they are retards..hell. morphi e didnt even exist until like 1810 or something around there.. im sure the german pharmacist who developed it wasnt just giving out the recipe for free , and especially they werent going to give out the best way to make heroin until they sqeezed every penny they could out of it..

  37. I doubt there are a lot of people who buy and sell keys of anything on bb and if they did they wouldnt be talking about it...loose lips sink ships..lol I really dont know why they call it china white anymore I guess it just has a ring to it, most of the heroin made in asia as of the last 20 or so years now has been increasingly reduced, there arent that many golden triangle producers anymore, maybe a little bit in burma, vietnam and thailand.. and thats maybe, most of the stuff being made is out of afganistan, lol I guess its technically asia..I dont know how many users but statistically 1 in 10 people use drugs habitually, but discussions about the heroin trade is facinating..

  41. Cultivation of opium poppies for food, anaesthesia, and ritual purposes dates back to at least the Neolithic Age (new stone age). The Sumerian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Indian, Minoan, Greek, Roman, Persian and Arab Empires all made widespread use of opium, which was the most potent form of pain relief then available, allowing ancient surgeons to perform prolonged surgical procedures.

  42. Um noooo, the higher the purity, the less expensive it gets.. lol because you can sell less for less than your competition who is having to sell more and get less...yes the same amount of tar as opposed to white heroin would in theory sell for more, but you actually can sell less of higher purity and make more money...you just cut it, everyone knows that...

  43. Vanderbilt was made from opium sales,fact. The Germans created heroinby accident,not on purpose. They were trying to create something less addictive than opium, they did not succeed. Same with Ecstasy (MDMA),the Germans were trying to create a drug for soldiers that made them more aggressive and more alert with little appetite. It did not work.

  44. Heroin and cocain ate two different animals....... heroin causes a physical addiction. ..While cocain is a mental addiction..... whatever price either has. ...The USA is the highest consumer of all illicit drugs..... it's like an other market. ... sell a product the consumer must have..... and you're a business success. ...go figure
