Michigan bust nets $150 million worth of drugs

Police said they seized an estimated $150 million worth of heroin and cocaine during a bust earlier this month in Pontiac. The Oakland County Sheriff's Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on Wednesday announced details of last Friday's bust in Pontiac. Authorities said a search of a home found 69 kilograms of heroin and 10.5 kilograms of cocaine. The agencies said it's the largest quantity of heroin ever discovered in Michigan. Sheriff Mike Bouchard said the sheer quantity of drugs is "startling.'

Authorities said a traffic stop earlier in the day turned up 2 kilograms of suspected cocaine and led investigators to get a search warrant for the home. During the search of the home, they found more than $560,000 in cash along with the heroin and cocaine.



It's scary to think that the drug dealers were feeling confident enough to get such amounts of drugs into their own homes. It makes me think they have done it countless times before being caught, and all those drugs ended up being sold on the street. I am not surprised though, my cousin is following a drug treatment San Jose and I have a feeling the situation there is very similar to this one.
