Major Meth Bust in OKC

One of the most disturbing sites on the Internet is called Faces of Meth. The site shows before and after pictures of those who have become addicted to methamphetamine.

The methamphetamine market in Oklahoma is at least two tiered. There’s the local product, often made my amateurs in one-off batches using limited amounts of ingredients purchased at neighborhood stores, and then there’s the imported, or Mexican meth. The homemade product is of low quality, and dangerous to make – called, “shake and bake” it combines an explosive mixture of chemicals and delivers a nasty concoction, only a small bit of which is useable methamphetamine.

The imported material is made in states with more liberal drug laws or in Mexico and smuggled into Oklahoma.

Law enforcement officers seized 15 pounds of Mexican meth earlier this month in a sweep of houses in Oklahoma City. The drugs were said to be shipped in by the Sinola cartel, one of several major drug gangs operating in Mexico. According to NewsOK, the cartel is responsible for shipping 25 pounds of methamphetamine every week into OKC.

To put that in perspective, that’s enough meth to get 24,000 users high – even if they are already heavily addicted.

With more than a dozen arrests, the meth distribution ring has been taken down. For now. After an 8-month investigation and the cooperation of 11 law enforcement agencies, 21 people were arrested at a total of 10 locations in the city and surrounding area. This gives some idea of how large these organizations really are – this one was set up to service our area. No one knows how many other drug houses are out there in the state or how many other networks remain to be discovered.

It may be an unfortunate fact of life that the cartel has more resources than we have to set against them and get this poison off our streets.
