Traveling LAX --> NoHo --> Your Coke Warehouse = Busted
More details have emerged in the case of the coke warehouse in Valencia. The two Canadians that were arrested for stashing 100 pounds of cocaine and $2.4 million in a Valencia warehouse were tracked from LAX to NoHo by police, according to CBS Los Angeles. A task force made up of Santa Monica officers and federal law enforcement investigators raided the warehouse on January 12th and seized the cash and the coke after tracking suspects from the airport to the location of the stash.
One suspect, Vasile Babuschin, was a suspect in a previous "major cocaine seizure." It is unclear at this time why Babuschin was free. He remains in a Santa Monica Department jail with his accomplice, Sergei Souetov.
