What happens to the drugs once law enforcement finds them? 211 pounds of meth found


FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) – It was a huge drug bust that resulted in the seizure of nearly $4 million worth of methamphetamine, but what happened next?

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says that one of their sergeants is on the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) task force and that the DEA uses a group called Environmental Restoration, LLC to dispose of large amounts of drugs like this one. This company’s address is listed online as being in La Porte, Texas.

Sheriff’s Office Lt. David Beyer said in that case that after the drug samples were taken, the rest of the methamphetamine was put in a barrel, mixed with chemicals and those chemicals destroyed the massive amounts of illegal drugs found.

Beyer said deputies at the sheriff’s office oversaw that process.

This comes after Sgt. Randy Thumann stopped a silver Ford F-150 on Interstate 10 and noticed “numerous indicators of drug trafficking” after talking to the driver, according to a news release.

The deputy and his K9 partner found massive amounts of methamphetamine in the truck’s gas tank.

Deputies said they arrested 49-year-old driver Marcial Ramirez of Del Rio for felony possession and took the suspect to jail.
