"Ten firearms, two bullet-proof vests, 98 grams of cocaine, 980 grams of high-quality crystal methamphetamine and more than $30,000 in cash reportedly was seized."
Thats it? ten guns 3 and a half ounces of blow and 2 pounds of crystal thats nothing.

Living in the community in which it was seized (unlike you) I am very content with what the police did. Since you sound as cocky as you do, maybe you can explain how many people 10 guns can kill and how many lives that 98 grams of cocaine and 980 grams of meth can help to ruin (and I'm not just talking about the users). Aside from that, now that this ring is taken care of, how many more, unknown amounts of drugs are NOT coming here? Thanks for your lack of thoughts.

And? These people were caught in possession of this stuff. That's good enough for me to say let them sit their butts in prison for years and years.

they were not high up dealers real high up dealers have pounds and pounds of that kind of stuff not a few ounces of powder and 2 pounds of crank and high up dealers dont have those little pistols they have an arsenal of guns. they raided places in chico, hamilton, orland and sacramento it wasnt just one house they raided and found all of it, it was multiple houses.

Ha, just because they didnt get caught with a lot of drugs doesnt mean they werent pushing big weight. They had the feds and helicopters after them. And if you actually read the article, it says that they were moving "several pounds" of drugs every month.

Who cares how much they had verses how much they could have. Finally a small bust such as this gets a message to the higher ups... they are being watched and busted even with the cut in budget for the Police/Sheriff dept.

And yes notice all the names are Hispanic. The Mexican Cartel is alive & well in California. Not Good!

Yeah, they've had their MANY chances in court. These are 2nd generation local thugs. Everyone knows their names if you've ever read a paper or watched the news. Looks like juvy did not work out so well, glad we invested our tax $ in them.

Fry them!

Good job cops!!!!!

I bet that scumbag lawyer Jesse Santana, the mexican gang banger advocate lawyer, will be representing one of these criminals. Oh wait, Jesse was indicted himself, amazing how criminals stick together.

i am just thankful someone was caught, and some drugs and guns were confiscated. now if they will actually convict these people, and leave them in prison for more than a few months.
i have such a hard time understanding that if the police know who and where these pushers are, why does it take so long to actually get them off the streets?
