DEA says makes largest PCP bust in history

HOUSTON (BestGrowthStock) – The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) said on Wednesday that it had made the largest seizure in history of the drug PCP and arrested nine Houston-area residents.

The DEA said in a statement that the 18-month investigation and operation, dubbed “Scratch Off,” netted 57 gallons of phencyclidine, known by its popular street name PCP.

The indictments against those arrested include conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute PCP. A total of 11 people have been charged in connection with the case and the other two, who were arrested previously, have already pleaded guilty, the DEA said.

PCP, also known by the street name “angel dust”, is taken in powder or liquid form.
