Three large meth labs dismantled in Mexico


Three synthetic drug labs producing an estimated US$160 million worth of methamphetamine were dismantled in Mexico on Tuesday (Jun 4), in what officials called one of the country’s biggest blows to drug trafficking this year.

Meth, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl are trafficked over the northern border and into the US – the world’s largest consumer of drugs.

Authorities say new technologies used by the army – including drones that identify heatwaves in uninhabited areas – have led to the discovery of an increasing number of drug laboratories over the last few months.
