Manny’s Delivery Business was a sophisticated drug running operation
In raids across multiple Southern California counties, the DEA on Wednesday took down a “heroin distribution machine” they say earned $250,000 a week packaging and selling the drug.
The group was extremely sophisticated and structured like a pizza delivery business and ran in plain sight as it operated the San Fernando Valley. It supplied locals from Santa Barbara to Riverside counties.
They packaged high-quality heroin and cocaine in colorful and white fluffy balls.
At one spot, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration seized drugs, $15,000 in cash and a car with a trap door for sneaking drugs. Sixteen people have been charged in the case.
“The volume was enormous,” said Will Torrence, the DEA’s resident agent in charge of the Ventura office. “Their dispatch and call centers received hundreds of requests every day for the delivery of heroin and cocaine.”
