  3. Wow!
    A nice find and seizure.
    Unbelievable, as to the quantity of such an awful drug. Can only imagine how much of this is actually being manufactured and distributed.
    I have yet to see such product being in high demand in my city. Cocaine and heroine are what's mostly sought out after. Only articles and documentaries of such affecting communities. Always considered this drug a rural thing and border epidemic.
    Maybe I am wrong with such assumptions?
    Nevertheless, a bad drug and good bust.
    Thanks BB .

  4. Who runs mocorito? Is it cds or blo? That's a massive hit but if what I'm seeing from the pictures is true then it looks like they did a pretty shit job of concealment. Well the first picture was alright but why use red containers in the woods

    1. Big by your perception maybe but very minor in reality. It was just closer to highway 15 and many trucks. Once packaged some lowlife was buying within 8 hours of packaging in USA.

  12. How much is 3 tons of crystal worth? Like 300 bucks - sarcasm? Crystal is the cheapest and about the most harmful drug you can buy. Being cheap is what makes people buy it so much in Mexico and even some parts of the U.S. Because of it's harmful effects only fools buy this and all drugs though to be honest!

    2. Ill break it down for shits and gigs.. one P of ice is worth about $10k in my area and thats somewhere between wholesale and retail. Multiply that by 3,000 pounds and that little tweaker lab just lost $30 million dollars. Not exactly something to sneeze at.

    3. 2:28. You didn't break down shit. That gram (point) your buying in your trailer park has been marked up about 18,500% from the first guy who buys the load in USA so your math is irrelevant

    4. About 800 bucks in mexico, 1200-1500 in the US firsthand.

  13. 3 tons. This is going to break the heart of the menchitita fans who claim he is the king of crystal. Little menchitita is only the king of targets and that is what happen when you require your trabajadores to extort the people

    3. 9:55. Your right. The street people and prostitutes in Mexico have been smoking cristal from Puerta Vallarta to Culiacan for several years before Nacho was killed.
      In the years of past narcos and gob agree not to sell drugs in the country except maybe turist areas, rich people and people with connections to cartel, and usual places with prostitution. Ignacio had many dolars but to have pesos faster Nacho had some people selling to new users in DF, Jalisco, Guanajuato, Michoac谩n, Nayarit and even Sinaloa. This is why most people I know say the the gob killed Nacho but with permission of CDS. Today in Mazatlan, Durango and Culiacan it is not as bad as TJ but many street people, workers of sex industry, and homosexual clubs are full of the users of cristal.

  17. That is a shit ton, literally. How careless can they be to let that much product just sit there. Was it just precursors or finished product ?
