TIJUANA , BC In a joint operation carried out between the State Preventive Police (PEP) and the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena), a large crystal methamphetamine laboratory was located inside a company building that allegedly sold lamps on the Rosarito – Tijuana Highway. It was also next to an Elementary School. Note: I assume this means the “Carretera Libre” not the toll section of Numero Uno, the Transpeninsular Highway.
According to the police, the packages were found to contain drugs, apparently “crystal” with an approximate weight of 235 kilos, while the detainees reported that inside the building are implements and other equipment for processing large quantities of methamphetamine.
The drugs along with the detainees were placed at the disposal of the corresponding federal authority, while the place was cordoned off and awaiting the corresponding search warrant for further inspection of the facility, since it is presumed that there are more drugs inside and equipment to bed confiscated and destroyed.
