Mexican Military Make Record Seizure of Methamphetamines

first_img Mexican military personnel made a record seizure of over 15 tons of methamphetamines and other substances used to manufacture synthetic drugs, the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) announced on February 8. The discovery of these psychotropic substances was a result of ground reconnaissance carried out by troops in the municipality of Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, in the state of Jalisco. Since 2006, the Mexican Army has dismantled 646 laboratories for producing synthetic drugs and seized more than 45 tons of methamphetamines, according to official figures. According to Antonio Mazzitelli, director of the UN anti-drug office for Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, synthetic drugs represent an attractive opportunity for criminal organizations because, unlike natural drugs, they can be produced anywhere, once the organization has access to the chemical precursors.

Whittington turns on power

first_img The Aidan O’Brien-trained colt had filled the runner-up berth on his two previous outings, most recently behind Intense Style at the Curragh, where he was a long odds-on favourite. Sent off as the 1-2 market leader in the hands of Joseph O’Brien, the Rip Van Winkle colt tracked the pacesetting pair of Dandyleekie and Spirit Of Wedza before moving powerfully to the front a furlong and a half out. Dick Whittington got off the mark at the third time of asking with an impressive success in the Lynn Lodge Stud EBF Median Auction Race at Navan. Press Associationcenter_img The race was over from there, as he came four and a quarter lengths clear of market rival Dandyleekie. The jockey said: “I should have won on him the first time out but he was quite green with me and he nearly beat a nice horse of Ger Lyons’ that day (Cappella Sansevero). The ground was too soft for him last time out. “He wouldn’t be out of place next week (at Royal Ascot). That lad has five-furlong pace and he is by a sire that is going places.” Dick Whittington remains entered in the Coventry Stakes and the Norfolk Stakes at Ascot. Shipyard looked booked for second when More Questions swept up to him in the Come Racing Friday 11th July Handicap, but Andy Oliver’s 3-1 favourite has been running over further and he battled on well under Gary Carroll to score by a head. There was another tight finish in the www.navanracecourse.ie Handicap and it went to 10lb claimer Ian Queally on the Pat Flynn-trained Les Darcy (25-1), who collared Shinyhappyjohn on the line for a nose verdict. Harry Rogers’ eight-year-old Calm Bay (16-1) won on turf for the first time as he led all the way in the Follow Navan Racecourse On Twitter Apprentice Handicap, giving Keith Moriarty his maiden success on his first ever ride. Moriarty is based with Tommy Stack and has been riding on the pony racing circuit for more than five years. Rogers said: ” He is a good young lad and he did what he was told. I couldn’t get a jockey for this horse and Keith’s dad was on the phone to me first and then Keith was on the phone every day to get the ride. It is great to see someone get a chance and I’ll use him again. The horse was down in the weights and hopefully he will go to Bellewstown now.” Aidan O’Brien was expected to complete a double on the day with Just Gorgeous in the Rotary Club Of Navan Handicap, but the favourite disappointed and it was stable companion Beyond Brilliance (10-1), the mount of Ana O’Brien, who swooped late to score by a neck. last_img read more
