25-year-old Kojoua Vu was reportedly arrested in connection to what is being called a “major meth trafficking operation” with alleged ties to the Mexican cartels. According to WXOW, law enforcement officials stated that the meth being provided by the cartels was not your run-of-the-mill “shake and bake” meth that they’re used to seeing, but instead a “high-grade form of the drug”:
This form of meth was much more dangerous because of its potency and highly addictive capabilities.
Their investigation revealed that the drugs were likely made in “superlabs” belonging to Mexican drug cartels. The drugs would get smuggled across the border and end up in the Twin Cities. From there, authorities said that 4-5 people from the area would routinely travel to the Twin Cities and get the drug and return to distribute the drug throughout the Coulee Region. In addition to La Crosse County, Jackson, Monroe, Vernon, and Trempealeau counties were involved in the investigation.(via)
According to authorities, this new high-grade form of meth sells for anywhere between $1,000 to $1,2000 per ounce.
