In the war on drugs and combatting human trafficking, the creativity of criminals is becoming increasingly difficult for border patrol agents to navigate. In a recent seizure, K9 units at the Otay Mesa border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego found a stash of methamphetamines disguised as onions.

“This was not only a clever attempt to try and smuggle in narcotics, one I haven’t seen before, but also time consuming to wrap narcotics into these small packages, designed to look like onions,” said Sidney Aki, the Director of Field Operations in San Diego for US Customs and Border Protection.

“While we have certainly seen narcotics in produce before, it’s unusual for us to see this level of detail in the concealment,” said Aki.

The attempted smuggler was a 46-year-old citizen of Mexico. He was arrested before being handed over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

The New York Post reports, “the 1,197 packages of methamphetamines, packed among real onions in the back of a tractor-trailer, were shaped into small globes with a white covering, weighing 1,336 pounds and valued at $2.9 million.”

    So, a LITTLE meth was sacrificed. Another 20 MILLIONS found their way in the country at another post!
    Relentless they are, because the drugs are requested!
    And the CIA, the FBI, are needing the cash to brake all laws concerning what the citizens are doing!
    GOTTA SPY on the People!

    If all this inventivity and creativity were used in a good sense instead of an evil one, if the hackers and those creating viruses infecting the Internet (and the humanity) were using their abilities in a positive way the world could be a better place. If narcos, hackers and other Faucis (add to my list Putin, the kipa-gang, the pedophiles, etc) were eliminated by death penalty the world could be a better place… But it is useless to mention the 46 yo mexican and say nothing about those being up and down stream.

‘Mass poisoning:’ Officials seize 15,000 fentanyl pills disguised as candy

“It’s a mass poisoning.” That’s what Derek Maltz, former DEA special operations director, is calling the fentanyl crisis. In an interview on Fox News, Maltz calls on parents to educate themselves, as the deadly drug is being disguised as candy.

Two Maryland men were charged with trafficking thousands of fentanyl pills that looked like popular candy into Connecticut, the Justice Department said Friday.

With Halloween just weeks away, Maltz wants parents to be warned that the deadly rainbow-colored pills may be marketed to children. During the recent seizure in Connecticut, officials seized 15,000 pills disguised as candy.  The drugs were stashed in Skittles and Nerds packaging, officials said.

“We’re seeing an unprecedented amount of kids dying as young as 13 years old,” Maltz said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

“And we know now, the DEA says, that 40% of the pills contain a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl.”

Maltz confirmed cartels are taking advantage of teens’ obsession with the internet by selling the drugs on social media platforms. Maltz added that the children being targeted in these sales may not know any better.
