HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Police say their drug task force unit has made the largest seizure of crystal methamphetamine in the unit’s history.
Wednesday, agents with the Madison-Morgan County HIDTA Drug Task Force (STAC) arrested Ernesto Bustos of Huntsville and charged him with Trafficking in Methamphetamine.
This followed an extensive investigation into the trafficking of methamphetamine. Agents served a warrant on Bustos’ apartment, located in the 6200 block of Rime Village Drive in Huntsville. They also searched a storage unit in the 2900 block of Drake Avenue that belonged to Bustos.
During the search, agents seized 6.8 pounds of methamphetamine (ICE) with a street value of approximately $250,000. Agents also seized nearly $10,000 in cash. This is believed to be by far the largest seizure of methamphetamine in the history of the STAC Unit. The investigation continues and agents hope to make more arrests and seizures as they follow more leads.
Police urge you to call the STAC office at 256-427-5456 if you suspect drug activity in your neighborhood.
