A cargo of precursor to meth from Belize busted across the northern border

Mexican newspapers are reporting a major bust of precursor used to manufacture synthetic drugs such as methamphetamine or crystal meth. The precursor is said to originate from Belize. According to the reports, the four hundred litres of precursor, about one hundred and five gallons, were seized in an area between Quintana Roo and Campeche in proximity of the Belize Guatemala border on Thursday.  At the time of the bust, the drugs were found in seven drums in a van carrying Quintana Roo license plates.  The Mexican army confiscated the drugs and detained four persons, all of Mexican nationality. The report says that the precursor was being transported to a lab in Pioneros del Río, which is close to the border area where it was to be used for the manufacturing of the meth.

    Several families in Belize getting rich with the meth trade and there is nothing the government of Belize or the police can do as they get a cut of the profits. Belize is crashing and burning.

    I disagree with the above comment. If we don’t do it, someone else will until the Gringos decide to stop poisoning themselves
