Sounds like some of that “diversity” and “multiculturalism” bull****.

There used to be a time in the 1960’s when Bucks County was “white than White Ivory Snow soap”.

Let’s see if the newspapers carry the citizenship/immigration status of these fine, upstanding citizens of whatever shithole they came from.

Then let’s see which cartel they were working for.

Possible murder charges for all if they can trace a death by drug overdose to any of their drugs/deals.

Looks like no place in America is safe from these Drug-Trafficking bastards.

Time to bring back the death penalty, en masse.

Busted: $8-million-a-week drug ring run out of Bucks County home

Busted: $8-million-a-week drug ring run out of Bucks County home

Bucks County authorities have charged nearly a dozen people with running a massive narcotics distribution center out of an unassuming Warminster home, pumping out nearly $8 million of opioids per week, District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said Wednesday.

After several months of investigation, the FBI, Pennsylvania state police, and local authorities descended late Tuesday on the single-family home in the 600 block of Cheryl Drive. When they entered, all 11 of those arrested were inside, with some working at basement stations set up for drug packaging, authorities said.

Investigators found about 200 pounds of heroin and fentanyl; bundles packaged for sale; stacks of cash totaling $32,000; 200 discarded heroin wrappers; and a loaded silver Taurus handgun, Weintraub said.

“This is as normal a residential community, 9-to-5 sleepy bedroom community as you will find anywhere in the country,” Weintraub said, “and this was going on right in the middle of it.”

Moises Rodriguez, 42, of Paterson, N.J., and Dariel Vasquez, 38, of Northeast Philadelphia, ran the operation, authorities said, and had often been seen leaving the house with giant trash bags. Weintraub said the pair regularly transported large quantities of drugs to and from the residence, but he did not know to where exactly they had traveled. No attorneys for the men were listed on court documents on Wednesday.

Warminster police have had the home on their radar since July, when an anonymous tip came in about suspicious activity, said Police Chief James Donnelly III.

The case exemplifies why tips from the public are important to authorities, Weintraub said.

“Keep your tips coming,” he said. “They are working.”

Those charged were living in the home, Weintraub said, but did not own it. The owner of the property had no idea what was going on there, he added.

Six of the defendants had no fixed address, according to court documents, and Weintraub said he didn’t know what brought them together in this quiet neighborhood, aside from the allure of making a profit. Authorities also said they did not know how long the drug ring had been operating out of that home.

The crew’s secret scheme came to an end on Tuesday.

TV news footage showed officials in hazmat suits and masks appearing to search the property into the night, parking a large truck in the driveway and hauling out dozens of boxes. Weintraub declined to elaborate on the logistics of the federal raid, but said it was “like what you’d see in the movies.”

Arrested alongside Rodriguez and Vasquez were Nuris Martinez, Yocasta Maria-Mercedes, Eleni Saturrie, Carlos Garcia-Perez, Roberto Espinal, Jose Luis-Morales, Luis Torres, Devlin Perez, and Luigi Ortega. All face drug distribution and related charges.

All were being held Wednesday at the Bucks County Correctional Facility. Bail for Rodriguez and Vazquez was set at $10 million each; the other nine each had bail set at $5 million.

For years, a heroin epidemic has been building across the country. Fentanyl, heroin’s cheaper, more addictive, and more potent counterpart, has recently increased in popularity, according to Drug Enforcement Administration data. In Pennsylvania, the synthetic opioid was present in 67 percent of the more than 5,000 overdose deaths in 2017.

Prood that going after prescription drugs like vicodin, oxycontin etc are not the problem yet, very real people with very real pain are being stigmatized and denied relief by the efforts of the fedzilla...

Can we use confiscated drug money to build the Wall?

And you ask why all those people want to enter the USA? They are salesmen and women looking to be rich by being your local sales agent. The promise of easy money is drawing them, because of the cartel backing, the cartel needs more sales agents. OK I’m sure there are more than a few that just want the opportunity to find honest work, but when they don’t, what happens?????? I don’t want to brand them, because in the past this country brought in Tesla and Marconi, but they also brought in Capone and Luciano. There is good and bad in the batch, but the batch has to be looked at carefully before we open the doors.

"Check out good old American names of those killing Suburban housewives children."

True, but it would probably be better to keep that paraphrasing out of the article excerpt space and put it in a comment instead.

Looks like they brought the narcotics to where the new demand has been growing for a long time. Very sad to see, but we’ll probably learn an old fashioned national lesson from the horror.

The neighbors didn’t notice?

In our neighborhood, we’d notice...and that spit wouldn’t fly.

On the bright side, maybe they can get a tax deduction for a home office.

I lived across the street from the dopers back in the late 70’s. It was a great neighborhood. I hope it still is.
