    Default Drug smuggling operation busted !

    This places a stain on the good reputation that UPS drivers and employees share.
    Another case of greed. When a good job isn't enough, some turn to crime.

    11 arrested after investigation into drug smuggling operation involving UPS employees
    TUCSON – Eleven people were arrested Thursday following a two-week-long enforcement activity related to an investigation into drug and money laundering.
    According to U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations and Tucson Police Department began the operation in 2017 after the officers learned that drug trafficking organizations were transporting narcotics from Tucson to the eastern part of the U.S. through United Parcel Service employees. HSI said this method was also used to transport U.S. currency to Tucson.
    After further investigation, the officers learned that the involved UPS drivers and supervisors reportedly used methods to prevent law enforcement and other employees from identifying and intercepting the narcotics.
    Authorities say items seized in connection to the investigation include distribution quantities of narcotics, commercial-grade equipment used to manufacture illicit drugs and about 50,000 counterfeit THC vape pens.
    The bulk currency involved and other items, such as a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Raptor trucks and a Range Rover, were taken for seizure consideration.

    Trucks and drugs. Seem to go hand in hand lately. I wonder if the driver of this rig knew what he had ? Maybe some crispy pork Carnitas.

    $3 million found in truck’s raw meat load
    A routine traffic stop turned into a major discovery of suspected illicit cash in North Carolina over the weekend.
    The incident occurred on Saturday, December 7, in Cleveland County, North Carolina, according to a news release from the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.
    Police say that they stopped a Hispanic male driving a semi truck southbound on I-85 for failure to maintain his lane and impeding the flow of traffic.
    During the search, officers say that they found approximately $3 million in cash hidden in barrels of raw pork shoulder.
    The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office says that it “has reason to believe that the money was headed to the US/Mexican border and also believes the money was a result of drug sales throughout the region. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has been called in to help with the investigation.”
