DEA Acting Administrator Timothy J. Shea and local law enforcement officials announce the largest domestic seizure of methamphetamine in DEA history

LOS ANGELES – At a press conference today, DEA Acting Administrator Timothy J. Shea and Los Angeles Field Division Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner announced the seizure of 893 pounds of cocaine, 13 pounds of heroin, and 2,224 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, which is the largest domestic seizure of crystal methamphetamine in DEA history. 

In June 2020, the Los Angeles Field Division, Southwest Border Group 2, began investigating a large-scale drug trafficking organization with ties to the Sinaloa Cartel involved in the transportation and delivery of large quantities of cocaine and crystal methamphetamine.  During the course of the investigation, agents identified a Southern California-based narcotics courier/stash house manager along with multiple locations and vehicles associated with the courier and the DTO.

On October 2, 2020, through investigative means, agents and Fontana Police Department investigators established surveillance on the courier’s residence.  During surveillance, Fontana Police Department investigators observed the target and a secondary associate load two duffle bags into a vehicle and leave the location.  The courier target and the associate ultimately met with a third associate at a Sam’s Club parking lot in the city of Moreno Valley where they unloaded and delivered the two duffle bags to the third associate.  During that time, investigators detained the courier target and the two other associates in the parking lot for questioning and they were later released.

Based upon the investigation and locations previously identified, agents authored state search warrants for multiple locations, including the courier target’s residence and a narcotics stash house within the city of Perris.  During a search of the courier’s residence, agents located approximately 25 duffle bags within the garage of the residence containing approximately 406 kilograms of cocaine, six kilograms of heroin, and 650 pounds of crystal methamphetamine.

Additionally, during a search of the narcotics stash house in Perris, agents located approximately 1,600 pounds of crystal methamphetamine.  This is an ongoing investigation.

“The largest DEA domestic seizure of methamphetamine in history is a significant blow to the cartels, but more importantly it is a gigantic victory for communities throughout Southern California and the United States who have had to deal with the torrent of methamphetamine coming into their neighborhoods,” said Acting Administrator Shea. “We continue to work with our state and local partners to attack drug trafficking at all levels and this seizure sends a clear message that we mean business.”

“Los Angeles is the major transshipment hub for Mexican cartels trafficking illicit drugs across our southwest border,” said Special Agent in Charge Bodner. “Successful seizures like these save lives and reduce the exploitation and victimization of our local communities.”

“The significant seizures announced today thwarted drug traffickers’ plans to profit from these dangerous drugs that cause incredible harm to our communities,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  “The Justice Department is committed to making our neighborhoods safer by aggressively disrupting drug cartel operations in the United States.”

Participating law enforcement partners include the Southwest Border Group 2 – including the South Gate Police Department, Simi Valley Police Department, Huntington Park Police Department, Glendora Police Department, Downey Police Department, El Monte Police Department, Irwindale Police Department, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department – and the Criminal Division’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section of the U.S. Department of Justice.

  2. Fontana has to be one of the most popular hubs to traffic drugs. You’re 2 hours away from Tijuana, Phoenix, Las Vegas and 1 hour away from LA. With an abundance of trucking companies to ship your product to the east coast.

    2. 11:02 wrong, The drugs are only worthy when the money hit the Banksters accounts, until then they ain't but cheap investment.
      Only investigators and police make off with government pay and subsidies, an expense much larger that never produces enough to cover the costs and becomes prohibitive once prostiturers and lawyers and private prison corporations get involved in housing 100k USD per year per prisoner, they even get paid FOR EMPTY BEDS CHINGADAMADRE!

    1. @11:14am Why do they kill off experienced operators who lose a load? It is a given that in that business you take a pinch now and then. But I understand, that's the way the mafia rolls. Before he hit it big with The Godfather Mario Puzo used to trail a Mafia gambler. The gambler had a tipster. The tipster was not allowed to give him two bad tips in a row.
