The Spoils of "Operation OGSTYLE" Gang Shakeup: Guns, Cocaine, Cash, and Cars

Following yesterday's gang shakeup in south Phoenix, authorities are now well-equipped to make one hell of a rap video -- they seized cocaine, dozens of fancy cars, and enough cash to make it rain for days.

The Phoenix Police Department, as well as several other law enforcement agencies, carried out "Operation OGSTYLE" in south Phoenix yesterday morning in response to an increase of gang and drug violence.

The spoils of the operation, the Phoenix police announced yesterday, includes $170,000 in cash, 19 pounds of cocaine, 17 firearms, and dozens of high-end cars, including over $350,000 in vehicles from one suspect, including vintage vehicles found hidden in storage units.

In all, 40 suspected gangsters and drug dealers were arrested when authorities simultaneously executed 20 search warrants throughout the city.

"Operation OGSTYLE" was headed by the Phoenix P.D. but included law enforcement agents from several other agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Arizona Attorney General's Office.

Phoenix police say officers from the South Mountain Precinct began to notice an increase in drug-related complaints in south Phoenix in August of 2009.

Since then, authorities have been monitoring the area for drug activity and identified several gang leaders from several different gangs working together to purchase, manufacture, and sell crack cocaine throughout south Phoenix.

"The effect on the South Mountain community will be a lasting one; this entire criminal organization has been dismantled from top to bottom," acting Phoenix Chief of Police Joe Yahner says.

Come on?  9/kilo / 900k in coke and no weed and only 170k in cash and you call this a bust?

It does make you wonder how much didn't make it back to the station house.   Weed would be a bigger seller in South Phoenix.    There aren't many people with enough income to buy coke there.    Anyway, it's party time at the P.D.

Hope they will use that dirty money wisely, for RICO purposes. Something the MCSO MACE-unit coud not do. If MCSO have gotten their paws on that dirty moolah turned RICO funds. It would have been used for arpaio's media circus stunts.

The Bald Bunion of Pinal County used RICO money to pay for twenty-five county employees to attend his presentation of "Sheriff of the Year" accolades.
