    Largest Fentanyl Drug Bust In History Made As Truck Tried Crossing The Southern Border

    10:20 PM 01/30/2019 | Media Mike Brest | Reporter

    U.S. Customs and Border Patrol seized enough fentanyl to kill over 50 million people from a truck that was trying to cross the southern border into the United States, according to an investigation by “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
    WATCH:



    “Well, the U.S. border patrol has made the biggest fentanyl bust in history. An enormous amount, enough fentanyl to kill—they estimate—57 million people. That’s more than the combined population of the states of Illinois, New York and Pennsylvania. It’s a lot,” Carlson stated.

    “We got our hands on an internal memo from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that details this bust. The biggest fentanyl seizer in U.S. history,” Vaughn began. “According to the memo, four days ago in Nogales, Arizona, at the port of entry, CBP officers stopped a tractor-trailer crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. with enough fentanyl to kill 57 million people. That’s plenty of fatal dose to wipe out the entire populations of Texas, Arizona and New York state combined.”

    She continued:
    They found this under the floor of the trailer. They found 114 kilograms of fentanyl. According to the DEA, just two milligrams is considered a lethal dose. They also grabbed 179 kg of methamphetamine and one gram of fentanyl in pill form. The street value for the fentanyl over $102 million. The CBP officers arrested the smuggler, a Mexican national who attempted to drive the drugs across the border. The suspect was a part of the DHS’s trusted traveler program called FAST, that stands for free and secure trade for commercial vehicles. The program started after 9/11.
    The bust comes as President Donald Trump is trying to secure funding for a wall he would like to be built along the southern border to prevent smuggling and illegal immigration. Many Democrats have countered the president’s desire by saying a wall would be “immoral.”

    Federal and local authorities teamed up to seize two truckloads of methamphetamine and marijuana this week after they spotted “two trucks avoid a border checkpoint and drive into an uninhabited desert area with their lights off,” according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

    An estimated $2 million worth of methamphetamine and marijuana was seized in Arizona this week, officials said Friday.
    The drug haul on Wednesday yielded roughly 200 pounds of meth and 3,500 pounds of weed, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. The department collaborated with Customs and Border Protection agents as part of the County Drug Suppression Task Force (MCDST).

    Authorities operating near Gila Bend spotted “two trucks avoid a border checkpoint and drive into an uninhabited desert area with their lights off,” the sheriff’s office said.

    Tire deflation devices were set up and the vehicles “were rendered inoperable” after coming in contact with them, they added. Four suspects allegedly took off from the area on foot, the sheriff’s office said.
    “Detectives coordinated with CBP agents and air support, and three of the suspects were subsequently apprehended,” according to authorities. “The vehicles, loaded with bricks of methamphetamine and marijuana, had been reported stolen and were driving with fictitious license plates.”

    Ever wonder what $2 million in methamphetamine and marijuana looks like? MCSO detectives intercepted two trucks carrying these drugs bound for our streets. Working with CBP agents they seized 220 pounds of meth and 3500 pounds of marijuana and caught three suspects after they fled the vehicles.
    Sheriff Penzone: "This seizure is an example of exceptional police work by our deputies and law enforcement partners. It is also an example that the demand for drugs continues to be epidemic. Illicit drugs are the most impactful contributor to violence, crime and gang activity that continues to adversely impact our community and our families. We will be unwavering in our commitment to hold the line. “
    This operation was part of the Maricopa County Drug Suppression Task Force, a collaboration between area agencies.





    The apprehended suspects – who were identified as Jose Jaime Garcia-Lopez, Yoni Ontiveros-Torres and Ruben Espericueta-Jiminez – were booked in jail on charges of possession and transportation of dangerous drugs for sale and possession and transportation of marijuana for sale, the sheriff’s office said.
    “This seizure is an example of exceptional police work by our deputies and law enforcement partners,” Sheriff Paul Penzone said in the news release. “It is also an example that the demand for drugs continues to be epidemic. Illicit drugs are the most impactful contributor to violence, crime and gang activity that continues to adversely impact our community and our families. We will be unwavering in our commitment to hold the line."
