Meth bust goes down in history as largest ever

Local News

A meth bust in St. Louis is going down as one of the largest ever.

More than thirty people were arrested Tuesday and more than 3 million dollars in drugs and weapons were seized by the DEA.

DEA agents needed several tables to display what they found in a massive methamphetamine operation in St. Louis.

The DEA stated that state and local governments have restricted access to Pseudo ephedrine leading to a dramatic decrease in small Missouri based Meth labs.

At the same time the DEA said Traffickers are making the drug in super labs then transporting it here for wholesale.

The DEA said Meth arrived monthly for distribution.

The network also allegedly smuggled cash to California.

The 190 pounds of meth seized was nearly 100 percent pure.

While law enforcement celebrates a bust this big they now turn their focus to competing drug organizations.
