    Seven million dollars might not seem like a lot when you consider that the illegal drug business generates hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue for organized crime all over the world. But, at least there’s $7 million worth of hard drugs off the streets. A major drug bust occurred earlier this week at the U.S./Mexico border in Texas. Border officials said that an estimated $6,998,000 worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and what is believed to be heroin were discovered.

    When deputies arrived on scene, Walmart employees told them there were two young girls who were reportedly found "camping" inside the store's clothing section and when approached the girls, they left on foot. Investigators said one of the girls left a cell phone behind, which led deputies to one of the mothers.

Sheriff Kim Cole said when the mother of one of the girls, who is the one who allegedly took them to the store around...

    A Georgia woman spent more than three months in jail on drug charges after sheriff’s deputies mistook congealed cotton candy they found in a car she was riding in for methamphetamine.

In the lawsuit, filed this month, Dasha Fincher alleges that she was wrongfully arrested and incarcerated in December 2016, when she and her boyfriend were pulled over by Monroe County sheriff’s deputies. The deputies found a blue, crystal-like substance in a bag on a floorboard in the car and evaluated it using a roadside test kit,...

  • 50 Tons of Meth Found in Underground Mexican Drug Lab

    In a scene that could be straight out of hit television series “Breaking Bad,” Mexican marines found a huge underground methamphetamine lab on Friday, according to Reuters. The lab was found in the mountains outside the capital of Sinaloa state. If the Sinaloa drug cartel rings a bell, that’s because it was infamously run by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for years. Guzman is currently facing trial in the United States. What makes the discovery both remarkable and terrifying is the fact that Mexican officials found 50 tons of meth in the lab. The drugs were reportedly incinerated on site, due...

I live in rural area that has zero crime or problems. I am sharing this because most leave their doors unlocked while they eat dinner or watch TV. And they don’t...
