Three people have been arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine from a Sierra Vista meat market, police say.

The case started after tipsters told police they suspected drugs were being sold at Carniceria La Noria, at 833 East Fry Boulevard in Sierra Vista, Cpl. Scott Borgstadt said in a news release.549892b9621d4_image

After a yearlong investigation that included undercover drug buys, police said they searched the business Friday and found evidence consistent with drug trafficking. They also found 18.5 grams of methamphetamine, which has a street value of $1,850, Borgstadt said.

Arrested were: Rosa Moran, 34, the owner; and brothers Jesus Edgar Gonzalez, 28, and Marcario Gonzalez Martinez, 24.

Each was booked into the Cochise County jail on suspicion of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, conspiracy and money laundering. Bond was set at $200,000 apiece, the release said.

    A lot of fast food joints and restaurants are also doing this kind of thing–very common. It’s made in the kitchen and distributed in takeout orders alongside food as a decoy.
