The Arizona Star reports that Jose Guerena’s older brother was the target of the investigation that resulted in Jose’s death at the hands of an over-eager SWAT raid last month;
Jose Guerena’s contact with law enforcement began in late 2009 when he was a passenger in a vehicle carrying large, commercial- sized rolls of plastic wrap that deputies believed was used to wrap large loads of drugs, but no drugs were found inside, the document said. That same year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents investigating a narcotics case saw two men driving a loaded car to a residence where they found more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana. The two men were followed after they dropped off the marijuana at a house. Jose Guerena was at the house, but he was not arrested in connection with the case. Two men are awaiting sentencing in that case.
The new reports focus more on Guerena’s older brother, Alejandro.
In January 2009, a deputy who had stopped a vehicle driven by Alejandro Guerena found a semiautomatic gun and several thousand dollars in cash, court documents show. He was found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon.
A large roll of plastic wrap, huh? Towards the end of the article, there’s a possible explanation for the plastic;
The third home, owned by Jose Guerena’s mother, had most of the furniture wrapped in plastic, documents show….
If being in possession of large rolls of plastic makes you a drug dealer, maybe they should make large rolls of plastic illegal. Of course, they’ll probably have to fight the little-old-lady lobby.
And you know, even I’ve been at parties when some drugs showed up. Does that make me a drug dealer. Granted, I usually left at the first whiff of pot, but that’s me.
And, oh, if you have wet weather gear, you’re probably a drug-dealer;
Sheriff’s Department officials said earlier this week that high-end military gear and advanced weather-protective clothing were found inside a storage locker two weeks after the shooting. The locker, they said, was rented to Bertha Guerena, Jose Guerena’s mother. Records obtained Thursday show that detectives found a U.S. Marines sleeping bag and Gore-Tex coveralls. Guerena was a former Marine who served in Iraq, military records show.
Whoa! One of those cop-killer sleeping bag and Gore-Tex drawers? Dude definitely deserve to die for possession of those dangerous items. I mean, why would a Marine need something to keep him dry if it wasn’t a means to smuggle drugs?
Next, I hope these are exit holes in the back of the house;
And here’s the widow surrounded by some Oath Keepers in those cheesy T-shirts made to look like Ranger tabs;
