Sinaloa Cartel: Massachusetts biggest drug bust 33 pounds of fentanyl

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat from Boston Herald

Enough drug to kill every man, woman and child in the state 


Federal agents and Boston police have seized more than 33 pounds of fentanyl — enough of the deadly synthetic opioid to theoretically kill every man, woman and child in Massachusetts — funneled in by Mexico’s  Sinaloa cartel.

Allowed wiretaps after
being busted
A lengthy wiretap operation by a joint task force including Drug Enforcement Administration agents and Boston police resulted in an

early-morning sweep of the drugs and 37 suspects, including alleged kingpin Robert Contreras, 42, of Roxbury.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley called the investigation “one of the longest, most far-reaching and most successful state wiretap investigations in Massachusetts history. ... But it did not stop there. It continued up the ladder to identify a second group at the top of the domestic pyramid, one with direct ties to Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel.”

Contreras was ordered held on $1 million bail during his arraignment yesterday on charges of trafficking fentanyl, heroin and cocaine.
The six-month investigation first led to the arrest late last year of Edward Soto-Perez, 43, of Roxbury, who led a group that would distribute drugs obtained from Contreras throughout Massachusetts and as far away as Pennyslvania, Conley said.

Robert Contreras is the direct link to Sinaloa Cartel
  
“We allege that the Contreras organization worked with members of the Sinaloa cartel, one of the most powerful drug-trafficking organizations in the world, who imported huge quantities of narcotics into the northeastern United States,” Conley said. “In fact, we believe they were so high in the distribution structure that the next level up would take us outside the United States. Evidence suggests that the Contreras organization would receive those cartel narcotics and distribute them to the Soto-Perez group and others, who would in turn supply lower-level dealers.”

In total, 77 pounds of drugs were seized, including heroin, cocaine and opiate tablets in addition to the fentanyl. Authorities said they confiscated $300,000 in drug money.

Michael J. Ferguson, DEA’s special agent in charge of the New England Division, likened fentanyl to a weapon of mass destruction.

“You take a sweetener packet that has 1,000 milligrams in it that you put in a cup of coffee. It takes only two milligrams and it’s lights out for an individual,” Ferguson said. “We’re talking a couple of grains of salt or sand. It can kill you if you inject it in your arm, if you snort it up your nose or simply breathe it in the air. Drug traffickers are now lacing fentanyl not just with heroin, but with cocaine as well. As well as in pain pills, counterfeit pain pills made to look like Percocet.”

The 33 pounds of fentanyl seized is enough to kill more than 7 million people in its raw form, a law enforcement source told the Herald. The Bay State’s population is 6.8 million, census figures show.

    1. The only thing in this article that could lead one to suspect the carfentanil came from a Taliban-spinoff group is the fact that the detained has an Arabic name.

    2. Stfu. Some cartels or mafias are almost one entire country that operates them like Russian probably and Yakuza. You cannot compare one to the next. Mexico has at least two other major cartels like CJNG and even Juarez that if they combined would probably topple many mafias mentioned and then some. In the states Mexican mafias or cartels have no rivals and this is the way it looks like its going to be for the foreseeable future!
      So take all that fuckin envious knowledge of yours cheerleading for Italians, Russians, Chineese or any other mob and shove it up you a..

    3. There is always some fuckers that want to say one or all Mexican cartels can't compare to Italians, Columbians , Russians, Chinese, etc...and now even Haqqani. Whoever the fuck they are.
      Americans are just so accustomed to want to make Mexicans look inferior to them that now even with cartels they want to do this. Open your eyes people!!!
      Racism is still alive in the U.S. even in threads like BB.

    5. 6:40 yes that is true but what's your point?
      Not all Mexicans are involved in crimes and much less in the states!

    6. 1:59 They are all brainwashed bro They see crime and cartels and drugs and they all jump on the Wagon every human being on earth has bigger problems to worry about then just cartels killing each other. The fucking government's are trying to depopulate human society and control it all you dumb fucks need to wake up bb are paid by the pinche gringos to make Mexicans look bad there are plenty of gringos drug traffickers moving big weight too but not one fucking news source or BB post SHIT ABOUT them. Fuck every piece of shit who disagrees

    7. Uh.. hey 4:30 this is bb, not gringo watch. I’m not sure what you’re even trying to argue? I’d argue that is probably an equal number of gringos and Mexicans that frequent bb. The cool thing about the internet is, if you don’t like something, you don’t have to read it or visit that website. Though with how much of a liberal you sound like, I’m sure you’d rather visit these websites and ‘wake’ us all up with your vast insider knowledge and connections.

      eh

  2. I don't get how fentanyl is so profitable if it's so lethal. Seems like it'd be hard to get repeat customers.

    1. Cartels take weak heroin and lace it with fentanyl which turns it into super dope for 5 cents per dose.

      Delete
    2. its profitable because you can take one kilo of fentanyl and cut it 10 times and still end up with 10 kilos stronger than most heroin.

    3. So its like heroing were one key turns into 10 for selling on the street

  8. What losses or gaps in their existence are heroin junkies trying to fill? Can this be remedied without smack dealers making a killing plying black market drugs to our younger generations; can society step in here in any way? Life can be painful and unfortunately opiates seem to treat the symptoms of pain very effectively. Not the causes.

    1. It's very sad. The doctors were told, and paid by big pharma to prescribe these drugs. And, you're on these drugs, you don't care...,about anything. I had back surgery a ways back, and had been on moderate doses pf opiates for 6 mos. Never abused. Went through 3 days of hell from withdraw. Most cave and start buying pills, then eventually leads to heroin snorting, smoking, then the needle. Vicious cycle. Now there's a huge anti opioid campaign going on so people aren't gonna get their pills, so guess what their gonna do....heroin laced with fentanyl, there's even fent nose spray you can buy. It's gonna get worse. US and Mexico are gonna muscle in on all the dope money now. Trump needs to finance the next war.

    2. US lawmakers protect gun dealers, their lobbyists, manufacturers and the NRA like the paid criminal acco.plies they are, legal Big Pharme drug dealers also paid them, now the "government to is trying to pass 300 billion dollar laws for "help" for the addicts and shit...
      Why can't the creators of the problems be fined for all their ill gotten gains and some extra for good measure?
      Lawmakers are too quick to go for the taxpayers' deep pockets and get a good grab of all their posey hairs to give their masters heavenly tax breaks...

    1. They gotta justify their paycheques somehow. When they get real desperate the DEA does hand to hand buy-busts. What a waste of resoures!

    2. Somebody sent Sammy the bull graven to set up some drug trafficking to Arizona when he was trying to escape John gotti's death squads, and after he got it all organized he got put in prison for more than 20 years, and the Red Mafiya flourished all over New York and New Jersey, florida, pennsylvannia, Michigan, illinois, Indiana, Ohio and diversified into a lot of real expensive real estate, investments and gambling operations, the gaming's was much too on the way to success, but no traces of the sinaloas, unless they were in Arpaio's prisons for profit...

    1. You think so? I feel like history repeats itself. Heroin was huge in the 70s and Coke came and made a rise. Then it died down right when the pill mills were starting to blow up. The younger generation is living thru this zombie land currently so I think within 5 years, Coke will make its rise again. Mainly because the younger crowd will want something different than Fetty.

  13. Building a wall wont stop the drugs why because it wont stop the demand drugs will get here somehow, you cant blame other nationals for our problems like drug use and gun violence why because we are not doing nothing to stop it. We simply put our addicts away in prison and thats not going to help them. Gun violence is mostly done by us American born citizens its time we open our eyes. Im not saying not to up hold our imigration laws. People need to get here legally my fear is that we are being brainwashed into hating anyone who is not American our kids are watching our actions it seems little by little we are turning into the Nazis of the 1930s. We cant blame others for our problems what we need to do is face them and fix them. By reducing drug consumption here it will reduce violence here at home and reduce the income of drug cartels abroad then we could think of ways to help those countries not by just giving them money but working on their infrustructure and opening jobs. We are the leaders of the free world and our actions will determine the future of humanity. We cant just simply turn the other way on suffering and injustice because thats not what leaders do, its our duty to do whats right.
