Today on March 5, 2012 there were three men all of San Jose that were arrested and charged in connection with one of the largest methamphetamine seizures in American History.
Anthony D. Williams Drug Enforcement Special Agent in Charge; Dennis Burns, Palo Alto Police Department Chief; Chris Moore, Sand Jose Police Department Chief and Jeff Rosen, Santa Clara County District Attorney made the announcement. All of these people were involved with the investigation and the ultimate arrest and they are to be congratulated. This was the largest drug bust in history.
The detectives from Palo Alto Police Department were following up on some information they got concerning stolen iPads. This investigation led them to an apartment located in San Jose. They were doing a preliminary search and they observed this large quantity of methamphetamine. These detectives knew they had come across a big bust so they called the San Jose Police Department and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office for some help. That is when they called in the DEA San Jose Resident Office. As a result of the investigation they seized approximately 750 pounds of methamphetamine; this supply has a street value of $34 million. They also found items believed to be stolen from Palo Alto at this location.
These three guys were charged and arraigned with state law violations: conspiracy to transport a controlled substance; manufacturing a controlled substance; possession for sale of a controlled substance; child endangerment; gang enhancement because the investigation is believed to be tied to a Mexican drug trafficking organization. Bail was set at $2 million each. Of course in America, the charges are only allegations and the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
This supply of METH is off the streets now and that is 750 pounds less that will be distributed in these communities.
