Huge Mexican Drug Bust

Some of the kookbergers here are going to hate to hear this, but Mexican police have seized $205 million after raiding a house in an exclusive neighborhood of the capital. MWC News - A Site Without Borders - - Mexico police in $205m drug bust

Have you ever seen this many $100 bills?

Is that the amount of money spent each year on Mercedes repairs?

Another huge bust at sea...

Coast Guard boarding of a suspicious vessel off the coast of Panama led to a record seizure of cocaine - nearly 43,000 pounds of the drug hidden in two containers onboard the vessel Gatun. "This record-breaking seizure denied the Mexican drug lords $300 million in drug revenue," said DEA Administrator Karen P. Tandy. "This lost drug revenue, combined with last week's unrelated record-breaking $205 million cash seizure by the Government of Mexico working in partnership with DEA, dealt Mexican traffickers a one-two punch: they're down more than half a billion dollars in blood money in just 48 hours."

It's funny. There was absolutely no word about that bust off the coast anywhere on the news here. This is the first I have head of it.
It does not suprise me one bit though.

Keep your eyes open. One of those big bales of cocaine may come floating in...

You just know there was more than $205 million there. $205 million is what was left over after the Mexican cops skimmed what they wanted off the top.

Yeah, I'm sure Dubya wont care if he has to pay an extra $10 per gram due to a squeeze on supply.

Did you think the prohibition laws were a good thing too, Martini boy?
