Illegal Aliens Caught Driving Tanker Truck Carrying Liquid Meth, Worth $90 Million

LINDEN, NC (WRAL) – Officials on Saturday discovered 120 gallons of liquid methamphetamine stored in a fuel tank in a semi-truck in Harnett County.

According to the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office, the driver, 49-year-old Raul Topete Arreola, and another man, 48-year-old Aquileo Perez Pineda, were each charged with three counts of trafficking methamphetamine.

The liquid would be converted to approximately 454 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, said Sheriff Wayne Coats. When converted, the kilograms of crystal methamphetamine would have a street value of $90.8 million.

The methamphetamine was located in the fuel tank of Arreola’s 2009 Peterbuilt semi-truck, which officials seized near the 100 block of Will Lucas Road in Linden.

The suspects were placed in the Harnett County Detention Center under a $3 million bond. The investigation is ongoing.

Officials said an immigration detainer has been issued for Pineda, and ICE is looking into the immigration status of Arreola at his time of release.

    You’re a fucking stupid brainwashed sheep. “Hang them”? Over drugs? Jesus Christ man.

    Let’s look at what he did. He DROVE a truck.
    The truck contained a liquid form of an illegal drug.

    What part of any of that, qualifies them being executed? Was anyone harmed? No. Were there any victims? No. Hmmm… So basically he was transporting something that CAN be made into a drug. If you think that a non violent, victimless crime, deserves death, you need to quit letting the media control your mind. Turn the TV off and think for yourself.

    A lot of what I just said may not make sense to you, because this is deeper than sheep can normally see, but some will get it. Those are MY people, the ones who understand that while yes they deserve some form of punishment for “Breaking the law”, by no means do they deserve to die. Lol 😂 YOU people kill ME with your ignorance.

    • You’re the problem! What, were they your supplier?
      Either you’re a meth head or some drug user to be this damn stupid! Disgusting!

    • Do u realize that those drugs are killing our children and young adults? These men must be prosecuted with harshest penalty.

    • WTF is wrong with YOU “Truth”????? I agree with John. Drug Trafficking and Cartels bringing in thousands and thousands of illegal contraband into this country of ours should be punishable by death! HANG THEM HIGH, before they kill millions of U.S. children!

    • How many people are these two going to cause to overdose? Untruth you’re the problem. To you there is no responsibility for your actions. Only your self centered self satisfaction and damn anyone who interferes with your pleasures and vices.

      Only an idiot can describe this as a non-violent crime, sort of like running illegal arms? Right Skippy? Isn’t treason non violent but it merits death. So does kidnapping and a host of other non-violent crimes. Yes you ought to turn off your TV, get rid of your bong and think for yourself if you have any living brain cells after all those drugs.

  2. Fyi ~ CNN came in behind Nickelodeon and Home and Garden Television and just a few slots above the History Channel in the latest cable network ratings.

    Why dont they check all liquids? I thought they did that at check points weigh stations. Hmm

    • If you’ve ever noticed a check point or weigh station and the thousands of trucks that go through them every day, it is impossible to check every tanker. Not to mention extremely unsafe. Great job to these officers that caught them.

  3. JOHN YOU’RE A MORON!!! YOU THINK DEALING METH IS A VICTIMLESS CRIME??? PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS STUPID!!! WHATS THAT BASTARD DOING IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY WITH A TANKER FULL OF LIQUID METH??? LETS FEED IT TO YOUR KIDS AND YOU TELL ME THEN THAT THIS IS A VICTIMLESS CRIME!!!!!

  4. Yes sir let them sell it to his kids,he will have a different opinion then,that stuff ruinds peples lives every day.and kills more than you can imagine.

  5. They are here because Americans want the drugs. If they didn’t there wouldn’t be a market. You can get all high & mighty about it, but we are our own worst enemy. I see it on the streets everyday.

  6. They don’t need to be here in the first place and they definitely don’t need to be driving a tractor trailer, especially a tanker trailer, just be thankful they were caught.

  7. What they were arrested for is only part of the problem. They never should have been in the country to begin with. BUILD THE WALL END CATCH AND RELEASE END LOTTERY AND CHAIN MIGRATION AND FUCK DACA! Get in line with the rest of the illegal aliens. Most of these so called “KIDS” are in their 30’s. Plenty of time to get legal but chose not to.

  8. By that logic we got alot of hanging from within our borders to be done because opioid deaths far surpasses the num. Of illegal substance deaths. meth dealers arent even close to big pharma! Dealers arent killing your kids they kill themselves. Technically an addict is his own victem noone elses.
    That being said throw them in a hole and forget to remember their there.

  9.
