This is, without a doubt, one of the craziest/most intriguing stories we've heard in a minute. According to AllHipHop, Washington, D.C. police and the Bureau the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives worked together to create a fake rap label as part of a year-long investigation in capital city. While working the case, the officers and agents arrested 70 people, confiscated more than 150 weapons, and seized $7.2 million in narcotics.
Back in November 2010, the two agencies opened a phony studio called "Manic Enterprises" in Northeast Washington for a fake rapper named Richie Valdez. They then apparently leaked information to the black market regarding their need to purchase guns and drugs, which were seized by agents and officers.
But the wildest part about all of this: the final seizure numbers. In all, they confiscated 161 firearms (one of which was a rocket launcher), 29 assault weapons, 80 pounds of methamphetamine, 21 pounds of cocaine, 1.25 gallons of PCP, 24 pounds of marijuana, heroin and Ecstasy.
