Out of all the things you could imagine that people have dogs for this story is one that will even surprise you, it certainly surprised us. But then using not dogs but puppies to achieve your cruel profit, unbelievable!
The Spanish Police discovered that the crime boss, a Venezuelan veterinarian who’s wanted by the United States, was found on their soil, hiding, they arrested him of course, he is suspected of trafficking heroin using puppies!
The veterinarian who is 38-year-old, and called Andres Lopez Elzora, was happily arrested on Saturday in Santa Comba, at that time he had been hiding because the court finally approved his extradition!
The police report that the guy had allegedly implanted about 6.5 pounds of liquid heroin, packaged, inside little puppies, they raided the vet clinic and found out what they were up to back in 2005.
Andres Lopez Elzora is also allegedly part of a trafficking gang using dogs as drug mules too, they are sent to the United States from Columbia with liquid heroin inside them.
They used Labrador retrievers and stitched pockets of heroin, packaged up then inserted into them and sent then on commercial flights to New York, they cit the packets out and the dogs died in the process!
He was arrested back in 2013 in Spain, but then later released while a decision was made as to whether he would be extradited back to server trial for his crimes…
He had lived in Spain for 8 years, he is married and has two children, on the surface he seemed like a decent guy to people who didn’t know anything more about him, in Spain he had no prior records of drug trafficking.
Finally, he was arraigned in Brooklyn Tuesday last, now he awaits trial, he faces charges of conspiring to import and distribute heroin into the United States, if convicted he will face up to 10 years in prison and as much as a life sentence in all.
United States Attorney, Richard Donoghue, said:
“As alleged in the indictment, [Lopez] is not only a drug trafficker, he also betrayed a veterinarian’s pledge to prevent animal suffering when he used his surgical skills in a cruel scheme to smuggle heroin in the abdomens of puppies …Dogs are man’s best friend and, as the defendant is about to learn, we are drug dealers’ worst enemy.”
The investigation started about 12 years ago said DEA Special Agent in Charge James Hunt, when a farm in Colombia was raided in 2005 which happened to also bring about the rescue of 10 little puppies, a lovely addition to the find there at the farm!
