$11 Million Worth Of Heroin Seized In The Victor Valley

A tractor-trailer hauling $11 million dollars worth of heroin through the Victor Valley was busted by the California Highway Patrol Thursday morning.

CHP officer Robert Mendenhall told Victor Valley News he stopped the tractor-trailer for speeding on the northbound 15 freeway, north of Highway 395 in Hesperia at about 8am.

“Subsequently, I pulled out my k9 sniffed the exterior of the tractor-trailer, the dog alerted, the dog also then alerted inside the trailer. We then located a large quantity of narcotics inside the rear of the trailer mixed in with the load.,” Officer Mendenhall stated.

According to Mendenhall, they estimate the truck was transporting 100 kilograms of suspected heroin to the country of Canada before it was intercepted. The drug has an estimated street value of $11 million dollars.



Although the stop was conducted in the City of Hesperia, the truck was unloaded in Victorville,  across from the CHP office on the 14200 block of Amargosa Road.


The driver’s been arrested for possession and transportation of narcotics.

“I’ve been with the Highway Patrol for 29 years and this is my largest drug seizure of heroin. This is rare having this much.”

    2. You can't get to Canada from Victorville using "back roads" lol.... undetected? Haha

    3. Anything under 300 pounds can fly under the radar. BTW not trying to downplay anything, but this load's value is probably closer to $6-7mil.

      One must always factor in quantity, the geographic facts, and more importantly risk.

      Sadly, there were probably 9 more of these trucks that successfully made the trip that day.

    4. If you've ever driven a tractor trailer before you know that dual manifests and dual logs can be kept. And every driver knows that 4 every scale house there's always back roads or alternate roads. If you're carrying something illegal or you're just plain overweight you go around everything. Most drivers that cross country do these things. And most are also high on speed. You're only legally allowed 2 drive so many hours a day. But as with everything in life there are ways around everything. Getting 2 your final destination isn't always about taking the shortest route. I'm more than sure this guy got busted 4 plain old driver error. - El Sol Perdido

    6. @11:17 Sol, I don't think you have ever driven and most of the things you said are wrong. I drove a long haul big rig for a little over a year and half and logged a little over 500,000 miles and have crossed nearly every state from Washington to Florida and New England to San Diego. You are right that some drivers use a 2nd log book to cheat a little bit (I have at times) but that second book is only useful in a traffic stop, At weigh stations in many states they can check their computer and see what time you passed the last weigh station or when you entered the state and your log book better jive with their computer or you are "out of service".

      I never knew of a single or alternative road to bypass a weight station. "Most driverIf you're cheating you just hope you don't get caught.

      "Most drivers that cross country do these things." FALSE. That is just not true.

      "Most are high on speed" FALSE. That is just not true. Most professional drivers would not risk their livelihood by getting caught in a random drug test.

      Shame on you for disparaging a profession that is made up of men and women who work hard to deliver all those items you see on the shelves in any store. It's a hard lonely life and very much under appreciated by much of the public.

    8. I never see any parades for Jimmy Hoffa, if it wasn't for him teamsters wold still be at the mercy of the parasites, those parasites would not have stolen las Vegas from the mobsters that invested the money there in partnership with the teamsters, those parasite businessmen are really sticking it to everybody in the US, and the unions got paid to mind their own business and stop recruiting

    9. If he was passing through on the North 99 there's another chp weight check in Merced here in California but if he would be on the North I-5 then idk. I don't think it matters though he should of stayed within city limits different from out of city limits.

    10. I will only rephrase 2 say that not every truck driver in America does this. Only those in the business. In Mexico it's mainly a free 4 all. Otherwise how else do the drugs get across America? The transport business plays a factor in this. And yes drivers do go around scale houses because of the illegal cargo or because they are overweight. Keep in mind that when you're hauling drugs you don't have 2 be at your final destination right away. There is no deadline that has 2 be met. And dual drivers play a factor in this as well. Otherwise you're just in the dark about the drug business. Are we supposed 2 just believe drugs come into the U.S. magically? And $ travels south because of sorcery. - El Sol Perdido

    11. Chole, most of the money that counts, stays in american or European banks, the chinese corporations are owned by american offshorers that keep their money safe from the claws of the american government and their taxing bodies, not everybody can play the no tax paying game like the donal, you know?

    12. 500,000 miles in a year and a half?? Not possible.. That would mean you drove approximately over 900 miles everyday for 1.5 years.. With zero time off..

      Delete
    13. @4;05 Franky, I said that I drove for a little over 1 1/2 years. It may have been closer to 2 years. It was twenty years ago and I don't remember the dates, but I still have the little plaque that my company gave me for 500,000 miles without an accident. I had an unusual situation, I was living in Mexico and had (still do) a wife there but it was rare that I could get home so I just drove. Sometimes she would come to the states and meet me and ride with me for a couple of weeks. But that was all a long time ago.

  6. I'm a truck driver and I rarely ever get inspected... maybe once every 2 years.. and I run all over the country. And when I have been pulled over, I have never seen a cop just randomly use a canine..

    2. I read the full story on ABC7 and the Officer said the driver was acting nervous when talking to him. Which led to the k9 inspection.

    3. GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION..

      Always look at where the bust is happening, along with how much "traffic" is to and from the border (or border-states).

      Delete
    4. This is what I'm wondering. Was it just the driver going into business for himself? Or did he not even know what was in the back, and someone in the company coordinating it?

      Delete
    5. If the driver "acted nervous", he more than likely knew about the load.

      Now, who exactly he was working for, we hadn't the slightest clue. Seeing as it was in CA however, and it was Chiba, my bet is it was either CDS or CJNG.

  12. This article is straight Bs! The sent Of Narcotics would never have been on the outside of the vehicle. the cartels are not going to make
    a obvious mistake like that costing them 11 million in heroin. My guess is the cop is lying about the canines first detection just to have probable cause to further the search or someone dropped a dime on the driver.

    1. Your guess is just that: pure speculation. A conspiratorial hunch, based on nothing. A dog's nose is 1,000 times more sensitive than that of a human. Of course dogs are effective tools for finding drugs - if they weren't, why would law enforcement use them? The truck driver's first fatal error was speeding; his second error was in acting nervous once pulled over. It's therefore absolutely plausible that, given these two mistakes, the people smuggling the drugs also failed to secure them well enough so as to be undetectable to specially trained dog. So many armchair narcos on BB, so little knowledge...

  17. "All" the posting here are useful, even if I disagree with some.

    My dos centavos: The bust was a snitch job. In the "chain" of command events from the when the contract was first made, the heroin packaged and loaded, to selecting the driver, to the last link of the pull over, the dog search, and arrest. I would not be surprised if this truck was not being escorted by DEA, GPS, or even drones as it came from Mexico into the USA on its way to Canada.

    Thus, I theorize that here are "dedos"(CI, snitches) in the heroin smuggling chain ...Because of past stories when valuable loads are lost, I foresee brutal tortures and gruesome deaths, and maybe some nasty pozole in my crystal ball. I would not want to be any part of the chain in this bust !!

    From knowing an experienced truck driver friend it is 'stupid" to speed, mess with weights, or do anything odd to attract attention.

    Also, it is becoming more frequent for citizens to alert law enforcement (in real time via Ipads, etc)when they notice reckless drivers or hazards. All drivers carrying valuable illicit "cargas" must be highly aware to not attract attention by speeding or driving carelessly.

    The above facts leads me to conclude that "dedos" figure in this particular bust.
