The “War On Drugs” has claimed a lot of dealers this year and even more drugs have been seized domestically and overseas. No matter where you go in this country, drugs will be found. This means that there are drug dealers, all coming from diverse walks of life. Today’s win for law enforcement happened in St. Lawrence County in upstate New York. The laws up there executed a sizable cocaine bust, reportedly amounting to $10 million.
Around 7 PM on Monday evening, St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies pulled Christopher Jandreau, 25, in the town of Canton. The deputies grew suspicious of Jandreau’s behavior, according to WMUR 9ABC, and summoned the K-9 unit. The pooch sniffed around the 2012 Toyota Camry, and detected the presence of drugs.
Initially, deputies say they found “five pressed powder brick packages” of blow in the car. Upon further searching, they discovered 42 more bricks in a hidden compartment. That 47 kilos, or close to 104 pounds in total. WMUR reports:
Jandreau, 25, was arrested and turned over to Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Border Protection agents in Massena.
He was held in federal custody at the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility.
Jandreau, who lives in St. Lawrence County, will be arraigned on specified drug charges determined by federal prosecutors.
Somebody in upstate New York is mad, be it the coke boys up there waiting on weight or coke sniffers who will have to find another source for their fixes. Either way, chalk up another win for the boys in blue.
