Tijuana: Drug shipment from Culiacan packaged with shrimp seized at airpot

Drug shipment from Culiacan packaged with shrimp seized at airport

It is the nature of the city.  The bodies appear with cartulinas, mensajaes, the drug loads cross, the drug loads appear in the local press, flanked by Policia Federal, or the SEDENA, or PEP, whomever.  Yesterday the product was seized at the Tijuana airport.  The dried shrimp boxes, originating from Culiacan, Sinaloa contained 922 kilograms of methamphetamine, 39 kilos of cocaine, and 10 kilograms of heroin. 



The common poly drug load and the large amount of methamphetamine indicates one of the more prominent Sinaloa traffickers that work the Tijuana plaza.  The cocaine would be certainly bound for the United States, broken into smaller loads, and trafficked into the US.  The crystal, could be destined for retail sales in Tijuana, or trafficked into the US, possibly both. 

The large amount of crystal is suggestive of a near secure route with the airport, despite the low cost of the drug, in Culiacan.  The price in Tijuana would be around 1,000 a pound, jumping slightly in San Diego to roughly 1500-2000. Regardless, no one wants to lose nearly a ton of product, that was carefully produced, smuggled, and payoffs certainly made. 

This method is commonly used, in Damaso Lopez Nunez's aka Mini Lic's 2016 indictment, federal court documents detailed several intercepted drug shipments, bound for Tijuana, from Sinaloa.  Large amounts of crystal, packaged with seafood, and smaller amounts of cocaine and heroin were intercepted in 2015 and 2016.  SEDENA with US intel seized the truck outside Los Mochis. 

The defendants, including Lic's uncle, discussed the seizures, even sending links from Mexico based media outlets to each other, while being electronically surveilled by US authorities.  These types of shipments have been common for years, as crystal began to be mass produced, and the price began to drop, significantly. 

It is another day in Tijuana.  Drugs in, drugs out.  They fall. They cross.  Money counted, washed, cleaned, spent, crossed, lost, seized, packaged.  The bodies displayed across the city, the daily news mentions, washed away with the night, the blood on the concrete of Sanchez Tadoaba, and Camino Verde, the sunset enveloping the city, in the darkness, awaiting another day.

  1. Lic's taking it on the chin! Take the stand, rat and know you are going back to Mexico after your current sentence. Son is killed . . . due to testimony . . . would say yes . . Sinaloanese. Once a warden, now incarcerated . . . get ready, for here they come . . . .

    1. Don’t talk bad about the Sinaloenses buddy. They can’t seem to handle truth well. Especially the guy aka the glorified snitch. Best to keep the truth sugarcoated always. - Sol Prendido

    2. 7:29 part of the guilty plea involves no deportation because of threats against their lives, but El Guero Palma was sent back to Almoloya where his worst enemy Miguel angel Felix Gallardo resides after all he made no bargain to become protected with his trumped up charges when he got railroaded in a US kangaroo court.

  2. It’s getting more and more common to see Huge amounts of Meth and smaller amounts of Cocaine and Heroin packaged together. Is the US market for Meth that big nowadays? I never thought Meth would take over in the US but It looks like I’m wrong. Must be the reason Coke is so expensive right now. Ain’t no more 20 a Key. Unless you got that Super Plug in Mexico and even then, it might not be less than 25. Heroin has gone down in price but that’s because of Fetty. There are more and more people buying Fetty directly from China and cutting out the middle man. One thing that has surprised me is that the Cartels haven’t gotten into the Oxycodone game, they make those fake 30’s but I’m talking about the real thing, since it’s such a huge market.

    1. Coke is priced out of the market in the US. You get a longer high with meth and the customer base is more loyal plus it’s cheaper. You got pushers mixing meth with random fillers and selling it as coke to dummies. Hard to find good yayo in the US of A. I hear the Europeans are getting all the good coke now tho.

    2. 7:36. That's so true about the oxycodone. I don't understand why someone hasn't capitalized on that yet. They couldn't get enough legit pain pills but if they could the payoff would be pretty big. With the huge shortage in the U.S cause of the opiate crisis filling the void with real pills smuggled in from Mexico would add a whole new stream of revenue for whichever cartel decided to make it happen.I know the fake pills made with fentanyl are everywhere but most people I know don't want to play Russian roulette with pain killers cause each batch is different from the next and that fentanyl is no joke .Had 3 people I know die in the last 8 months from fake pain pills they honestly thought were legit. No addict is intentionally trying to die from an overdose. If they started coming with real ones alot of prescription pain pill overdoses would decline. Just my opinion

    3. Yeah. Mexican meth is far cheaper to make, higher quality and preferred over backyard amateur cookers. I've been clean 16 years, but I still know users who've told me that about ten years ago, Mexican glass hit the market in my area and suddenly the demand for the "good Mexican stuff" skyrocketed. Backyard cooks became a thing of the past.

    4. @8:38, that’s interesting. I’m sure the Cartels are getting more money in Europe so that would make sense. The Euro is worth more than the dollar as well. Do you think it is as easy to smuggle into Europe as it is in the US?

    5. Yea very. I always tell everyone to test their coke to see what’s its being cut down with. No yayo is good yayo.

    7. @6:28, lmao, I love that movie. However, I don’t dabble in Coke. My vice is strictly weed and Red Bull.

    8. @ James Bond, exactly! I would assume it would be fairly easy to get legit percs in Mexico. Corruption is everywhere in Mexico and you could find a few pharmacies to load you.

    9. Ha ha fuckin James Franco, I use that line all the time.

    10. There's still a huge market for coke. A lot of people, I'd say most actually at least in my area in the east coast USA prefer coke over meth.

      Meth is cheaper and lasts longer but it also screws with the mind and body a hell of a lot more than coke does. Meth users are also way more unpredictable than cokeheads. Also the profits for meth are more but you are looking at a hell of a lot more jail time if you get caught w that as opposed to coke.

    11. @7:09, I’m on the Midwest/East coast line myself and I think Coke is bigger here as well. Seems as if Meth is a west coast and down south drug. It’s crazy how different regions dabble in different drugs. I wonder if Percocet is as big on the West Coast. It’s huge over here still.

  5. Time to arrest high level trafficers.
    Mencho is next in line.

  6. No supply and a lot of demand makes price of cocaine skyrocket, but wisemen have been diluting it with baking soda and calciums from the toilet, even making it up with 100% cheap ass meth or krokodyl to get the customer's last dollar, some say supplies come straight from China, and I guess a lot of money gets made by those who know how to distribute, then they get to be "amazingly rich".
    Mexican narcos would have never guessed how to get impunity.
