McDonald’s ugly association with heroin continues to balloon out of control thanks to a pretty hefty drug bust federal agents conducted on a Bronx apartment last night, January 30.
Frank Lucas may have called it “Blue Magic” back in the day but the DEA are saying their suspects, 35-year-old Augustin Rivera and 25-year-old Cristino Then were holding on to $8 million of heroin labeled “NFL,” “iPhone,” “Olympics 2012,” “McDonald’s” and “Lady Gaga.”
Investigators found 13 kilograms of heroin in the Williamsbridge apartment, located on Wallace Ave near Arnow Ave. According to authorities, the apartment had been under surveillance for suspected heroin distribution for some time, and they made the bust after a suspect brought two bags and a green box into the building.
In addition to the drugs, they also found scales, 18 coffee grinders, baking soda, face masks and a wide array of dime bags bearing the aforemetioned corporate and pop cultural stamps; there was also a batch dubbed “GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN,” which likely pairs well with the “Obama Care” heroin that popped up in Massachusetts last month.
Manufacturing heroin does not preclude you from being on top of current events.
Suspects Augustin Rivera, 36, and Cristino Then, 25, were arrested and are expected to be arraigned on drug charges this afternoon.
The name brand smack struggle recently reared its head in Pittsburg where a female McDonald’s employee was allegedly caught red-handed serving dope out of the drive-thru window.
Hit the flip for the pics of the latest caper in top-of-the-line heroin and kids, say the opposite of yes.
