California Nitrous Oxide Abuse Sting Nets 400 Tanks and 3 Arrests

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 1-Apr-2013

Federal agents in California recently executed a sting they called Operation No Laughing Matter, which included serving more than 20 search warrants in the sweep that raided 17 businesses and nine delivery trucks linked to an illicit nitrous oxide ring.

Following a year-and-a-half long investigation, law enforcement agents zeroed in on Los Angeles businesses such as welding and auto shops suspected of selling the inhalant illegally. The sting resulted in three arrests and netted a total of 400 tanks of the inhalant with a street value of about $20 million.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Sell, Distribution of a Controlled Substance, Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance or any other type of drug drime, it is important to hire a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who knows the law and has the experience to fight the charges against you.
