Anaheim struggles to keep drug trafficking at bay
Published On: 01-12-2016 in Category: Uncategorized
Anaheim is famous for its magnificent offerings like Disneyland, Honda Center, Adventure City, etc. However, the city has lately been in news for wrong reasons also. Frequent reports of drug busts suggest a significant rise in drug peddlers’ activity in the city.
According to a report by KTLA5, more than 30 people fell ill last year, after eating Rosca de Reyes bread from Santa Ana bakery. Lab test results showed that the bread contained synthetic drug.
In another incident, according to a report in The Orange County Register, cocaine and methamphetamine dealer Paul Anthony Anderson was killed by Anaheim police in Orange on April 6, 2015. Earlier, he was arrested on June 20, 2011 on charge of conspiring to distribute at least 500 grams of a mixture and substance and at least 50 grams of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of meth.
While the police department has been successful in arresting few drug traffickers, the city has also come forward in helping people stay away from addiction. Corporate houses in Anaheim have also volunteered to make the city sober.
The spate of raids and seizures in and around the city highlights the ongoing drug trafficking business that has forced the police to be extra vigilant. CBS Sacramento reported that six people were arrested in a raid in Santa Fe Springs on June 4, 2015. Three were charged with possession of more than 560 pounds of cocaine, while the rest were charged with possession of 120 pounds of drug.
The raids and arrests are taking place in nearby areas as well. According to OC Weekly, Orange County police officers arrested a meth addict, Stanley Carl Jared (49), in February 2013. He was convicted for drug abuse, felony strikes, spousal abuse, false imprisonment and assault with a deadly weapon.
NBC News reported that over 100 federal agents and Anaheim police officers conducted a raid in Orange County under Operation Halo and arrested members of Eastside Anaheim gang and seized 11 pounds of crystal meth and a cache of weapons.
