65 lbs of Crystal Meth seized at Lincoln - Juarez Bridge



Location: Laredo, Texas
Drug: Crystal meth
Weight: 65 lbs
Discovery: Vehicle
Value: 1.3 million dollars US

Officials of the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) intercepted on the Texas side of the Juarez - Lincoln bridge, a shipment of Crystal Meth valued at 1.3 million dollars US. The drugs were discovered after a search of a Durango Van driven by a 20 year old woman from Nuevo Leon.

Otis: If you look at this seizure and the seizure prior to this, its a wonder anyone bothers shipping marijuana north anymore. Both shipments have the same value, except the meth could be carried by one man at a weight of 65 pounds, the other would have to be moved in an articulated truck. If you compare CJNG and CDS, CJNG and Los Cuinis ship much more meth North of the border hence the latest data showing CJNG and Los Cuinis as the richest of the current cartels, with the real money for Sinaloa coming from Heroin and Cocaine shipments.

    1. Quality sensImilla is bought for 200 mxn ($11-12USD) per kilo in the mountains of Sinaloa and maybe 50 pesos more in the cities along Carretera 15 from Nayarit to Los Mochis. In any U.S. border town a kilo will sell for $300 and 15-20% more once it is past customs border patrol check point. How does a 30,000% gross markup not make Mexican millionaires? Buying a commodity in pesos and selling in dollars (close to 17 peso per dollar) they are getting rich from exchange rate change alone. Even with the bulkiness the risk reward selling wholesale is much better than other options.

    2. Heroina vs cristal vs cocaina- seriously??? WAY more kilos de cocaina is used in USA en that is why los carteles de Mexico love cristale - they own supply and no have to compete with los Hations, Dominicans, Columbians, Jamacains, gringos and other that bring cocaina y heroina to USA everyday by ship to every ports and every aeroport international in USA. Powder and rock Is used everywhere in USA by people rich and poor and sold in every neighborhood and kilo de cocaina is cheep many places. Cristal price de kilo stay high and turn money fastest.

    6. Uh-uh, 1:44 PM, like crack, crystal meth is cheaper by the rock, but it's way nastier than cocaine. Cokeheads have a better chance of rehabilitation and staying in recovery than meth addicts do. Meth tweakers chances are next to none. Meth tweaking puts users at risk for Hep-C and HIV and OD. Meth is a death sentence.

    2. There have been several reports in the press to that effect. Do I know that for certain? no its all speculation unless you work for the Dept of the Treasury.
      I would say almost 100% that CJNG ships more meth to USA than Sinaloa does. Is Meth worth many times what marijuana is pound for pound? also yes.
      Sinaloa cornered the heroin market in the US since WW2, and they ship a lot of cocaine, which is all worth more than meth per kilo. So based on logic, no CJNG don't earn more per year than Sinaloa. But earning more per year and being the richest cartel are two different things.

      To quantify a persons worth you would have to take into account all of their assets, including property and businesses. I think the Sinaloa setup is well known and studied, CJNG less so as they have only existed for a fraction of the time that Sinaloa has.

      I think that mencho operating with Los Cuinis, are similar to Mayo, and less like Chapo. Not courting publicity when it doesn't serve the cartel.

      I think who has most money is a fluid situation depending on what businesses have been targeted by USA sanctions.

    3. otis is respect your reporting a whole lot. trust me. you do a great job.
      but honestly i dont think that cjng ships more meth to the US..
      the Sinaloa Cartel has their own recipe for meth. and from everything i have ever read or heard about its the sinaloa cartel that dominates everything in the US market. and as far as cjng making more money than the sinaloa cartel that could be true. only because cjng dominates the european market.. and with the european market comes far less intercepted drug shipments/cash shipments ect.. its like a 99% chance the load wont be intercepted.. whereas in the US market that the sinaloa cartel dominates they have a lot higher rate of drug shipments/cash shipments getting intercepted.. so yeah thats probley why the cjng probley makes and has more money than the sinaloa cartel.. but also like otis said you never really can know for sure.. and if i had to bet who makes more money i would have to lean towards the Sinaloa Cartel..

    4. Sinaloa has Los Angeles Los callejones and pa Vegas they supply all the blacks with Coke to make crack Sinaloa filled Eastcoast streets wit heroin Chicago with lots of Coke and the west mid west is just straight crystal meth the marijuana stops at the border of Canada and US then it head to Alaska where everything triples up I know this because I know a few transporters for people in Mexicali and Tijuana mayos people is out and probably moving more than ever

    6. Kickbacks to rogue agents do not move through regular banking Channels, that is one of the problems that help all kinds of sociopaths and psycho bills to carry on with screwing the peoples.
      --We still do not know how much MONEY THE IRANI GOVERNMENT PAID TO ISRAEL FOR THE AMERICAN WEAPONS property of the US government or what became of said money, it did not go to the contras, that's for sure
      --Iran had no money, so it had to have paid with oil, sold in the
      blackmarkets in high seas, at very cheap prices (Marc Rich had to be presidential pardoned by clinton at the past minute for some of it) but there is no way anybody can prove any of it, there are the suspicious unexplainable fortunes of those involved, their peaceful enjoyment and our suspicions that there must be something there generating all that smell, the US treasury is selective and self censoring

You think the son of the biggest supplier of marijuana in the world would buy from a competitor? Stop all the bullshit about mexican weed sucks...its all from mexico if its smoked in the us. Yes its native to afganistan. Its bred in california. But its grown in mexico. Cultivated. Cut. Then shipped from mexico. Into those floresant blue or clear green pill bottles here in costa mesa.

What's marketed as Kush in the Americas is high-test, expensive, but not the same. Think 1970's Thai weed X 10 with lucid highs lasting for 12-14 hours, that's Afghani Kush. American Kush is a 2-3 hours' buzz, max. Weed's weed--grow your own!

    1. It can also be worst profit margin if confiscated because it requires many hectares de poppy to make heroina and requires many hours to achieve enough gum to create a kilo de heroina. Very high risk to investment and is why carried in small quantities compared to other contraband you say

Your Harperites and Canada's NDP can't cut it this time around, either. Mind you, the Ontario Liberals are complete arsewholes, but the Federal Libs do have some useful talents that Canadians could do well by. Pierre Elliott Trudeau was one of the handful of statesman the 20th century produced. Pierre Trudeau is the father of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which much to the House of Windsor's disgust, gave Canada the legal rights to legislate its own laws. Prior to, proposed Canadian laws had to get approved by British parliament before these could take effect. Justin speaks, thinks and writes in both of Canada's official languages--his español aint castellano, but he is a fluent speaker. He won't fuck up.
