If you’re thinking of getting into the drug trafficking game, Posh Pete’s story should be of interest to you. I think we can all learn some lessons here.
Ever wondered what a professional meth lab looks like? Well now you can find out as a British reporter takes a behind-the-scenes-tour with one of Mexico’s most lethal cartels.
Cricket, the gentlemen’s game that still calls the breaks between sessions ‘lunch’ and ‘tea’. This woman didn’t exactly uphold the virtues of the game though.
Imagine standing in a shopping mall parking lot and having six pounds of meth land next to you. That’s right, drugs are falling from the sky in Mexico.
Hank from Breaking Bad would be ecstatic with this drug bust (even though it’s not crystal meth). A massive amount of cocaine was found last week in Peru. Sorry for you, drug cartels.
There are two ways this story could’ve panned out. Either the clowns noticed some drug dealings going on and, being good Samaritans, immediately shot down the head honcho – OR – gunmen who always had the intention of killing the head honcho dressed themselves up as clowns, invaded the party, and shot the guy from close range. Done guessing?
When your job entails investigating illegal activity and ruffling the wrong feathers, it will very often put you in awkward situations. Investigative journalist Brian Krebs often publishes articles about the online criminal underworld and unsurprisingly he has been harassed for his efforts.
The Mexican drug cartels are more than just gangs. They are a combination of organised crime and military – even if a rather undisciplined one. It’s the mafia with radio towers, RPG’s and armored vehicles. They are extremely badass; in the most horrible and corrupt way possible.
The drug-cartels in Mexico mean business. Whether this is stringing up dead-bodies to quell opposition, or building a sophisticated radio network, they just do what they want.
By now you must have heard of Nobanda Nolubabalo, the 23 year-old South African who was arrested in Bangkok on Monday. She is accused of being a drug mule and was allegedly carrying 1.5kg of cocaine, hidden in her dreadlocks. Photos of customs officers searching her hair have since appeared online. See them after the jump.
The latest in a series of phenomenally creative, Hollywood movie style smuggling stories involves false-bottomed cars, parking meters and a total of 16 tunnels. Of course no one was caught in the act, but if you guessed that the tunnels were supposed to be filled with drugs and some very naughty Mexicans, you’d be correct.
This story could only happen in Africa, or maybe Russia. And as insane as this sounds, it’s all true: Sheryl Cwele, wife of State Security Minister, Siyabonga Cwele, who was convicted last week of international drug trafficking, will keep her job as director of health and community services at the Hibuscus Coast Municipality.
