That awkward moment when you realize that the “dealer” and “dealership” – not quite the same thing. Logistics oversight cost the cartels millions of dollars.
Mexican drug traffickers have no shortage of ideas on how to smuggle goods across the border. The vast majority of situations, the criminals are able to outwit law enforcement, but occasionally something goes awry. Recent logistical error cost the cartel in a fabulous sum: instead of falling into the hands of drug dealers, a large batch of methamphetamine went to the canadian Ford dealers.
According to a press release of the police of the province of Ontario, employees of the four dealerships “Blue oval” in Eastern Canada found in the trunks of newly arrived sedans Ford Fusion (harvested in Mexico) of non-original spare wheel, inside of which were carefully wrapped packages of meth. For further details, the police contacted the local representative and the Mexican Ford plant.
As a result, subsequent searches of thirteen dealerships of the company, the police managed to find drugs in nine cars. Six more “fords” with meth on Board had removed from the train. Only the security forces managed to detect about 180 kg – the party carries a minimum of $ 4.5 million. Obviously, the tab engaged members of the Mexican plant, but accomplices in Canada somehow could not “unpick” cars.
The arrogance of drug dealers (the police are confident that this is the largest Mexican cartel Sinaloa) knows no bounds. In 2017 with the same Mexican Ford plant arrived in the United States more than half a ton of marijuana. I guess the one time where the criminals hid “grass”? Yes, that’s right: in the niches for the spare wheel of the Ford Fusion sedans.
