Meth ring busted in Colorado

Posted on: September 28, 2010

Recently,  the Northern Colorado Drug Task force busted meth ring smugglers from Mexico. This drug bust has dismantled a portion of a drug cartel. The form of transporting the meth was in common car batteries. In fact, up to 50 pounds of meth were found hidden in car batteries.

Nine people have been indicted after an eight month investigation. The ring leaders are brothers – Gabriel Farias-Chavez 27, and Ramon Chavez 30. They have been allegedly responsible for importing as much as 30 to 50 pounds of meth each month from Mexico to the Denver metro area. Six of the nine arrested, including the Chavez brothers, were citizens of Mexico and three others were U.S. citizens.

This is how they transported the meth. In Mexico the drug smugglers put the uncut meth in functioning car batteries. Once the drugs arrived in Colorado, a cutting agent quickly and easily doubled or tripled the amount of meth in each of the car batteries. The distribution took place between March 1 and July 15 2010.
