62-Year-Old Man Tries Smuggling Meth Inside Tortilla Packages

Those pesky border patrolmen are getting wiser by the day, so drug runners seem to be getting more and more creative with their smuggling.

In this case, US Customs and Border Patrol Officers found a 62-year-old man trying to smuggle three pounds of meth hidden within packages of tortillas, Friday, Oct. 28.

They stopped the man at the border in Nogales, Arizona, and turned him in to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

More disappointing than anything, is the waste of all those tortillas. That’s at least 90 tacos that will never come to fruition, all because this dude tried being the Heisenberg of Mexico.

Border patrol also reported an additional meth seizure of 26 pounds that day, worth $78,000. They’re not yet sure if the two seizures were related, but that’s a lot of blow going down the drain in one weekend.

Taco Truck Meth Bust Would Disappoint Heisenberg

Did you ever watch an episode of “Breaking Bad” and think to yourself, “Man, this show is basically giving a step-by-step blueprint to drug dealing. Some idiot out there is going to try these things”?

So, some idiots out there tried these things. Except they didn’t keep their businesses separate the way Gus Fring did in “Breaking Bad.” Instead, the methamphetamine was sold straight out of a taco truck in Denver, CO. Customers could walk up to the truck, order some tacos and literally order a side of meth.

The Denver Post reported that this was one of the biggest drug busts in Denver’s history as 55 pounds of meth were seized in the investigation called “Operation Cargo.”

Seventeen arrests were made. The operation used several stash houses, a storage unit, a Mini Cooper and, of course, a taco truck.

In the words of Saul Goodman, “You suck at peddling meth.”
