A record breaking drug bust in Madras as the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team (CODE) seizes a million dollars worth of methamphetamine. The bust happened on Wednesday, when officers got information that a large quantity of narcotics was being transported on a commercial travel traveling from California. They arrested 20 year old Juan Luis Rangel Cancino of Washington state. Ken Mannix with the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team says the investigation is ongoing. “35 pounds of meth in a seizure is a huge amount so we'll be looking at a drug trafficking organization. There’s a lot of work to do. We’re working with law enforcement to try and find who else is responsible in trafficking of such a large amount of methamphetamine.” When officers stopped the bus, they originally found 13 pounds of marijuana concealed in a suitcase. It was only after Rangel Cancino started acting suspicious at the bus station, that they discovered the 35 pounds of methamphetamine.
