3 Arrested In San Carlos Undercover Drug Probe; Pit Bulls Seized

SAN CARLOS (CBS SF) – A three-month undercover investigation by law enforcement in San Mateo County led to the arrest of three people suspected of dealing drugs in San Carlos on Wednesday.

The county’s Narcotics Task Force received multiple complaints of drug dealing at a home in the 1500 block of Greenwood Avenue in San Carlos, task force officials said.

The task force, along with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the San Carlos Patrol Bureau, began to monitor the activities of the house and undercover agents arranged to buy crystal methamphetamine from the house’s occupants.

A search warrant for the house was served on Wednesday afternoon and law enforcement officials arrested three people.

A 5-year-old child was temporarily removed from the house during the search and eight pit bulls were restrained.

Two of the pit bulls were deemed aggressive and taken to the Peninsula Humane Society.

    Why is it that drug dealers always, always, seem to own or get caught with pit-bulls? If they didn’t want the attention, they might try a Yorkie or pug. Although they’d get more chick attention, at least they won’t get drug attention (until they’re busted).

    Criminals worry more about other criminals. A good bulldog is loyal and can learn to protect the handler easily. Problem is that they are not very bright so often can’t figure out the difference between a threat or non-threat situation, unlike malinois’ or shepherds.

    Nevertheless, all bulldogs are excellent pets.
