The Paramount bust

The DEA raided a Para­mount stash house after smug­glers brought three co­caine ship­ments there from the U.S.-Mex­ico bor­der. After the bust, car­tel high­er-ups summoned those in­volved to Sin­aloa for a meet­ing to as­sign blame. The stash house op­er­at­or, Eli­gio “Pes­cado” Ri­os, was kid­napped and beaten by car­tel en­for­cers.
