As for narcotics, a transparent yellow bag with 1,235 doses of crystal meth was visible. A black bag with the characteristics of marijuana, as well as 29 transparent packets with the same herb.

Wooden instruments, tactical equipment, caltrops and a boat with explosives inside were also located at the crime scene.

Semanario Día 7


  1. Wonder how much kidnapping, extortion, drugs sales went to the purchase, weapons and grenades? They were ready to fight anyone that got on thier way. Imagine lots of cells making thier own, only to comment more crime.

    Where are you, I am dying to hear your rants and raves, sorry the library was not open, to get free WiFi.

  3. Authorities capture an armed criminal cell . Which just happens to be the other authorities so stay tuned this one is prbly going to get weird .

  4. Question? When they say doses of drugs how much exactly do they mean? Like how much is 1200 doses of meth

  5. I would assume that each dose would be either 1/10th to 2/10ths of a gram .
