Smugglers’ Cross-Border Tunnel Discovered in San Diego

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

It’s not only Israel contending with tunnels, although for Israel tunnels pose an existential threat.

For the third time this month, a cross-border tunnel was discovered Wednesday (April 20) leading from Mexico to California. Authorities seized seven tons of marijuana and more than a ton of cocaine.

The tunnel, measuring nearly half a mile, is believed to be the longest ever found in California. It was equipped with a rail system, ventilation, lights and a large elevator, making delivery of the smuggled goods much easier and more efficient. Some tunnels along the U.S.-Mexico border have been discovered with hydraulic lifts and electric rail cards, according to Fox News.

The exit on the U.S. side was about three feet wide. Six people were arrested last Friday in San Diego and charged with constructing tunnels and other drug-related crimes. They were not identified and their affiliation is not known.

There are numerous drug cartels doing “business” throughout Latin America, including a number who carry out transactions with Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization.

Agents found 1,600 pounds of marijuana inside the tunnel. Another 11,000 pounds of cannabis and 2,242 pounds of cocaine were found in the truck that had been collected from the handy trash bin strategically placed to hide the mouth of the tunnel, as a pickup site for smugglers. In addition, another 1,430 pounds of marijuana were found in the bin.

Saudi Prince Accused of Threatening and Sexually Assaulting LA Women

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

A Saudi Arabia prince allegedly sexually assaulted and threatened three housekeepers in his Beverly Hills, California mansion.

The victims have filed a lawsuit against 29-year-old Majed Abdulaziz Al Saud, and their lawyer is looking for more alleged victims.

The alleged threats and assaults occurred in September, and Al Saud was arrested for alleged indecent acts during a cocaine party.

The official complaint charges him with having told one woman:

Tomorrow I will have a party with you and you will do everything I want otherwise I will kill you.

He is accused of having said to another woman, who  charged that she was kicked:

You’re not a woman! You’re nobody! I’m a prince and I’ll do what I want and nobody will do anything to me,” he allegedly said and later kicked her violently above her knee, according to the complaint.

The women’s lawyer told The New York Daily News:

Al Saud has violently threatened and sexually assaulted his employees and publicly shamed these innocent women in the public eye. This is yet another example of the use of gross wealth and power to exert emotional and physical abuse on those more vulnerable

In a separate incident, another Saudi prince flying in his private plane was detained at the Beirut International Airport for allegedly  “attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine.” Captgon is a stimulant.

British Jewish Crime Boss Sues Prison for Kosher Meals

Monday, April 15th, 2013

An orthodox British Jew serving time in jail for trying to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine is suing prison officials for discrimination by denying him kosher food, the London Sun reported.

Simon Price, 68, complained of “institutionalized anti-Semitism” and charged that although inmates are allowed to cook their own meals, he was given pots and pans that are used by non-Jewish inmates and come in contact with non-kosher food.

He also alleged that there are no Jewish texts in the prison library.

Price was sentenced to 35 years in jail in 2005 for the cocaine smuggling plot, and previously has served a prison term for a multi-million dollar robbery.

Mezuzah Firebug Remembers Nothing from that 2-Day Bender

Monday, April 15th, 2013

Ruben Ubiles, 35, suspected of setting fire to more than a dozen mezuzahs during a two-day hate crime spree, told a NY Daily News reporter he has no alibi “because he can’t remember a thing.”

“I’m nothing but a lost boy in a man’s body,” a tearful Ruben Ubiles told the Daily News in an interview conducted inside Rikers Island. “I don’t hate nobody, I don’t even remember. . . . It don’t make no sense.”

According to police, Ubiles can be seen on security camera recordings inside two buildings in Williamsburg where 11 mezuzahs were torched last Monday, and another on Tuesday.

“I don’t remember burning nothing. It doesn’t make sense. Why would I do that?” Ubiles repeated.

Ubiles, the father of two, said his lack of memory could be explained by his lavish use over the previous weekend of methadone, cocaine, marijuana and pills, and—my personal favorite—lots and lots of alcohol.

“I was clean since February, and then three weeks ago I went back to getting high,” he said. “I’ve been in jail since I was 16. I’m tired of this cycle, it’s killing me.”

Ubiles was arrested Wednesday morning, when police found him hiding under a bed in his girlfriend’s apartment in Bedford-Stuyvesant. He was taken to a hospital because he was too high on drugs to answer questions.

Police told the News that the suspect’s rap sheet has 52 previous arrests, including drug and assault charges.
