Big Drug Bust In Turlock Sees Dealers Selling Across State Lines – CBS Sacramento
TURLOCK (CBS13) — A drug bust in Turlock ended with multiple arrests and a large amount of contraband, said Patterson Police Services.
According to law enforcement, the bust revealed that suspects were selling drugs across state lines. This is common because other states often have more lenient drug laws and thus, it’s much easier to sell and not get caught.
Law enforcement explained that the “inconsistencies of drug and crime statutes between the states makes for a lucrative drug economy.”
However, much of the crime can be traced back to the original sellers, which is why it is important to take the operation out at the root.
During this particular bust, numerous people were arrested and a large number of firearms, fentanyl, mushrooms, and marijuana were seized.
