Well Doesn’t This Give You a Big, Warm Fuzzy

45 members of a Mexican drug cartel were arrested in ATLANTA today.

From CNN:

The arrests were made by members of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the Clayton County District Attorney’s Office and other law enforcement agencies, the DEA said. The investigation, called Operation Choke Hold, started in May 2009.

[…] During the arrests, the DEA said in a release, authorities seized 46 pounds of methamphetamine, a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory, nearly 95 pounds (43 kilograms) of cocaine, 4,120 pounds of marijuana, 20 firearms and $2.349 million [in cash].

According to the AJC, the operation began in Gwinnett County, then moved to Spalding, then finally Clayton. There were also cells in Cobb and Henry counties.

    Hmmm. I like calculators.

    Per each drug cartel member: $52 million cash, 1 lb of meth, 2 lbs of cocaine, and 92 lbs of marijuana.
