tiny village, big drugs

Cops Raid Chinese Meth Town

Chinese police on Thursday seized about three tons of crystal meth, using 3,000 police helicopters, motorboats, and dogs to arrest 182 suspects and take down 77 production sites in a raid on a tiny village in Guangdong province. Amphetamine use in China has grown over the past five years, and the town, Boshe, is apparently the most notorious drug-manufacturing area. Three people were injured in the raid, but are said to be in good condition.
