Bakersfield, California: 500 Pounds Of Crystal Meth Seized In Central Valley Traffic Stop; K9 Credited

"Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat

Crystal methamphetamine seized by CHP Central Division canine team in Bakersfield is seen in a photo released by the agency on Aug. 22, 2022.

A California High Patrol canine officer was involved in making one of the largest methamphetamine busts in state history last week, authorities announced on Monday.

On the morning of Aug. 16, a CHP officer stopped a 2017 Land Rover on State Route 99 in Bakersfield for a “vehicle code violation,” CHP said in a news release. “After noticing indicators of criminal activity, the officer deployed his canine, which alerted to the odor of narcotics.”

Officers searched the vehicle and found cardboard boxes packed with 500 pounds of crystal meth, according to CHP.

Two occupants of the vehicle, both from Fresno, were arrested and booked into the Kern County Jail on charges of possessing a controlled substance for sale and selling or transporting methamphetamine.

“Illegal narcotics have a devastating effect on our communities,” CHP Central Division Chief Ceto Ortiz said in a statement. “I would like to thank our Central Division Canine Unit for its continued commitment and dedication to removing dangerous narcotics from our roadways.”

That same day, two traffic stops by CHP canine officers resulted in the combined seizure of 150 pounds of drugs, 92 pounds of cocaine and 66 pounds of methamphetamine, CHP said.

  1. Another 500 pound meth load? I guess that exact size is common.

    Who even takes meth these days besides these crazy homeless people, vagrants and gangbangers? I used to know some somewhat “normal” people and recreational users who used to do meth back like 8 or 9 years ago but I feel like those days are gone and it’s just the fucked up people using it now, like weird demographics. I don’t even know the last time I heard about a teen using it. So it surprises me that they’re still trafficking so much of it.

      The Redding guy, Redding is up Northwest of California.

      Sol knows the answer.

    3. The technical dividing line for Southern California and Central California is Bakersfield. The Surenos also follow this. But ask anyone in LA/OC/etc. Bako isn’t, So Cal stops at the Grapevine/mountains.

    5. 8:44 Bako Naco are you referring to Blanko? He don't live in California.
      If you mean Bakersfield,
      It would be BFC.

    Good observation. You might be right. I'm not thoroughly familiar with all of the areas of California, but it looks like it might be in Jaoquin Valley by looking at the map. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    1. San Joaquin Valley(SJV) aka Central Valley because it's located in the center of the state. Bakersfield would be in the area called Southern Central Valley. Sacramento(North), Fresno(Center) and Bakersfield (South) being the bigger cities in each region.
