In the biggest drug bust in China’s history, police arrested 20 suspects and seized 1,033 kg (2,277 pounds) of heroin. That’s enough to reenact the adrenaline needle scene from Pulp Fiction about a million times, give or take.
Huangpu Customs in Guangdong Province disclosed the information as they were getting ready to destroy drugs from a raid last year (a meager 545 kilos of heroin). The drugs from this bust are scheduled to be destroyed on the 25th.
When we first heard about this latest bust, we’ll confess, we were hoping for pictures of police officers standing next to mountains of loose heroin (that’s how drug dealers store it, right?). Instead we get what looks like all the smack packages in the world spread out in a neat grid spanning a football field, which is really the only way to keep track of your China White: meticulously. (Also, is that a velvet sheet in picture two?)
