Authorities Seize Huge Amounts of Crystal Meth and Heroin in the Bronx and Queens

Last month, close to 20 pounds of heroin and crystal meth were seized in Queens and the Bronx. Authorities say the four kilos of meth was created inside of a lab in Mexico are worth $960,000, while the four-and-a-half kilos of heroin is valued at over a million dollars. Members of the New York Sate Police Special Investigations Unit witnessed three men deliver three kilos of  "black tar" heroin in the Bronx on Apr. 9. Police raided a Queens home, finding the other 1.5 kilos of heroin, the 4 kilos of meth, a 9mm handgun, a loaded magazine clip and $2,000 stashed inside of a vent.

They also discovered materials used to produce meth and a ledger for all of the meth transactions. Why would you ever keep a written record of criminal activity? Anyway, Henry NunezDiego Estevez and Miguel Mercado-Guelen have all been leveled with conspiracy and drug charges. Mercado-Guelen is way up shit's creek, considering that he was deported ten years ago.
