Multiple Drug Busts Lead to Arrests and Seizures of Meth, Cocaine, Fentanyl, and Heroin

Drug Bust Yesterday Near Me in Charleston, West Virginia

Police searched a single-family house along Snow Lake Lane 840 Monday morning. They found a large quantity of suspected meth, drug paraphernalia, stolen items and a firearm.

Nine people have been charged for their roles in a drug trafficking organization that distributed kilogram quantities of cocaine and fentanyl throughout Kingston, Ellenville and other areas of Ulster County. The charges include criminal possession of a controlled substance and acting in a manner injurious to children.

1. Fentanyl

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that’s 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin and morphine. It’s often added to heroin, cocaine and fake prescription pills to produce a stronger high at a lower cost. Unfortunately, just 2 milligrams can be lethal.

Fentanyl can be found as a powder, on blotter paper or in pills made to look like other drugs. It can also be snorted or injected. It’s usually produced overseas and smuggled into the United States through the Southern border. Drug dealers may add fentanyl to heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine or they might sell it separately as a pill or powder.

SNP officers and CLET operators, wearing full-body PPE, entered the apartment while removing multiple presses that had been used to compact the drug for packaging and distribution. They decontaminated multiple items to minimize exposure to fentanyl. Four people were taken into custody. The suspects were from out of state and one had a 12-year-old daughter in the vehicle.

2. Cocaine

A man who sold cocaine in the south side of Chicago has been charged. Chantell Toney was arrested on federal drug trafficking charges. He was allegedly selling the substance on the street, and he used fentanyl laced cocaine in some of his deals.

He was caught in a bust on Thursday. Police say they found a total of thirteen kilograms of cocaine and a loaded gun in his car. The drug and the gun were seized at T.F. Green International Airport.

MADRID, Aug 25 (Reuters) – Spanish police have made a record cocaine seizure in the southern port of Algeciras after finding 9.5 tonnes of the drug hidden among boxes of bananas from Ecuador. The discovery was part of a wider investigation into an organized crime group in Ecuador and European criminal networks that distribute the drugs, the police said.

Three members of a West Midlands gang who ran a stash house for the supply of class A drugs and deadly firearms have been jailed. They were convicted after a National Crime Agency sting.

3. Heroin

A drug dealer is facing up to 30 years in prison after being caught with more than 40 pounds of fentanyl. The bust comes six blocks from the day care center where a one-year-old child died of fentanyl exposure.

In a separate bust, the TCSO Narcotics Unit found two working meth labs with more than 96 pounds of crystal meth, more than 70 gallons of liquid meth, marijuana and hundreds of fentanyl pills. They also seized weapons and paraphernalia used for the manufacture of meth.

As part of the takedown, investigators uncovered a multi-district distribution network that flooded communities in Monroe, Wayne, Cayuga, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca and Yates counties with cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and other dangerous drugs. This operation was allegedly sourced by several individuals living within a single block of Avenue D in Rochester, including Raquel Torres a/k/a “Ma.” Torres allegedly provided cocaine to a large network of dealers and resellers.

4. Methamphetamine

A large meth drug bust took place yesterday near me in Charleston, West Virginia. Federal agents announced that 30 individuals were arrested as part of a drug trafficking investigation. The suspects are charged with various federal offenses, including conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine.

Police swarmed around the home along Snow Lake Lane 840 and found suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, $70,000 in cash, and stolen items. The Victoria police clan labs team helped in the search. Four alleged members of a criminal syndicate were arrested as a result of the investigation.

Detectives also searched a vacant house in the same neighborhood, finding a working meth lab and additional drugs and equipment. This led to the arrests of Caleb Andrew Herndon, 26, of Lewiston (two counts fentanyl distribution); Dashard Brown, 29, of Lewiston (two counts fentanyl, one count cocaine, and two counts methamphetamine distribution); and Dustin Lee Welch, 42, of Crozet, Virginia (two counts methamphetamine distribution).
