MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota law enforcement seized more than four pounds of heroin from a woman’s luggage at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, valued at more than $600,000.

A Carver County Deputy with the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force received information that a woman, Veronica Enriquez Becerra-Vargas, 25, of Bakersfield, Calif., was a drug courier and she had plans to deliver heroin to Minnesota.

Authorities learned she would be on a flight from Los Angeles to Minneapolis. They met Becerra-Vargas after she exited the flight and then got her luggage from baggage claim.

When searching her luggage, authorities found a false compartment. Inside the compartment was a wrapped package weighing about 4.4 pounds that contained heroin.

Becerra-Vargas was arrested for drug possession and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations.

Authorities said the street value of the seized black tar heroin is estimated at $640,000.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact the Carver County Sheriff’s Office at 952-361-1212.

    So she was an inconvenience to who?

      You are kidding, right???????

  2. jackactionhero says:

    She doesn’t sound like an American to me. Fly her halfway back home and let her fly the rest.

        Nope, I’ll even open the door for her.

        What do YOU think should be done with her?

    2. Raoul Duke says:

      If she’s from Bakersfield, there’s a good chance that her family has been in the US a lot longer than yours has, Jack.

      1. jackactionhero says:

        Substantiate that preposterous claim.

        There’s a good chance she snuck across the border with 37 of her cousins.

        She’s probably been here a week, so I doubt her family has been in the U.S. longer than mine.

        1. Raoul Duke says:

          Very simple, mi amigo. The majority of people living in Southern California (and Arizona and New Mexico) in 1848 at the time it became part of the US were Spanish-speaking. They became (yes, it’s true) US citizens as a result of the annexation. Families of Mexican heritage in the US predate the mass migrations of Scandinavians, Eastern Europeans, etc who came to the US in the late 19th Century. I’m sure it galls you to consider that they have just as much a claim to being American as you do, but I’ve come to expect as much from you.

          1. jackactionhero says:


            That was a very general statement, and it in no way bolsters your claim. I doubt she’s even a citizen, let alone one that’s had her family here for 8 generations.

            Hilarious of you to try to assert without any evidence though.

            1. Raoul Duke says:

              Actually, it does support my claim, Jack. People of Spanish/Mexican heritage have been US Citizens since the early 19th century, when the US purchased New Orleans and Saint Louis, and their numbers increased dramatically in the years immediately following. Given the fact that Bakersfield is on land that included the original Spanish land grants, there is a reasonable possiblity that this woman is descended from the Californios. And spare us the story of your legendary DAR, blue-blooded pedigree. Yes, we get it: you’ve been everywhere, done everything. You’re that guy on the beer commercial. – the world’s most interesting man. What a maroon…

              1. jackactionhero says:

                No it doesn’t support your claim, because you don’t have any idea when she or her family came to America, and on top of that, you don’t have any idea when I or my family came to America, so what are you basing your weak conclusions on?

                I’m not familiar with the DAR term. I haven’t been everywhere and done everything either. I’m just stating that you have absolutely no way to know where she’s from.

                What we do know is she is a Mexican drug dealer.

                1. Raoul Duke says:

                  Actually, you don’t know her nationality, at all. You’re supporting your conjecture solely upon the fact that she has a Spanish name. She could just as easily be a native of Boston or Argentina. You have no idea. You do, however, show a remarkable ability to act upon received stereotypes and prejudice.
                  As far as your family’s 8 generations of Americans, I presume that your family came here around 1900 and that you are the result of a regular pattern of early teen pregnancy. I base this upon your history as a convicted felon.

                2. jackactionhero says:

                  Number 1, I did not state my family was here for 8 generations.

                  Number 2, I have never been convicted of, or charged with, any felonies.

                  What’s with the insults? I thought this was a discussion, not an argument.

                3. jean says:

                  she could to be a real live american legal like, but we shall see, your statement is unfounded, based a name alone. but who ‘s happy about the drug bust,,, ME! and I dont care if she from france or whatever… she so done, lol lol …great drug bust!

              “Hilarious of you to try to assert without any evidence though”

              Really??? Are you effin kidding me? YOU asserted that she was not a US citizen just based on her name! Typical MNan who has passive aggressive tendencies and hides behind the cloak of a pseudonym.

        2. desert eagle .50 says:

          Exactly how long do you think she has been here? Please be specific.

    3. zee the reporter says:

      get a job jack its my heroin!

    4. Brett says:

      No, fly her, and at least 100 others like her down to the southern tip of Chile, put a parachute on their backs, make them do a ‘talilgate jump” from a C-130, and tell them, “If your skany ass ever appears on U.S,soil ever again, you will never be known to having ever existed, EVER. If they want to exploit any country illegally, that is up to them, but if they do it to US, they should pay the ULTIMATE PRICE.

      1. jackactionhero says:

        I agree, but why waste the parachutes? I’m cool with the rest of your plan. 🙂

    5. sumday says:

      oh so you have to have an “american name” to be considered “american”? What you don’t think we have real life American drug dealers? Let me guess you think only drug users are American while drug dealers are foriegners? You can tell about as much from a name as you can a skin color.

      1. jackactionhero says:

        Way to blow something out of proportion.

        I see white drug dealers every day. I’m well aware they come in every color and nationality.

        But when they have 4 Mexican surnames, I feel entitled to make one or two assumptions based on it.

  3. gpa says:

    Forget the history lesson. Looks like my New Years eve is shot. Have to stay home now that the mule got caught. Merry Christmas!

    1. bummed out says:

      No kidding, I can feel the racetracks already starting to scab over!

  4. mr obvious says:

    She is a whitey

  5. bobby says:

    I can’t beleive it, but I actually agree with Jack on something…

    Kim Jong Il must be cold, now that he!! has frozen over. 🙂

    1. jackactionhero says:

      Probably won’t be the last time! 🙂

  6. Kevin says:

    She is an lillegal you morons. Welcome to Mexisota…..This is nothing. If you study the Cartel you will see they are everywhere….infact just had a huge Cartel bust in Washington DC……16+ million dollars and hundreds of guns……keep them coming……and remember…no human is illegal and illegals have rights too!!!! Morons….

  7. Bill Clintons Cigar says:

    They are saving Farmington one eight ball at a time….

  8. gpa says:

    I remeber days of freedom. Smoking, joking and doing coke with Leon. Oh now what do I do that the mule got caught. Dosn’t make do differance to me if she was Cartel or illegal. We need a constitutional ammendment.

  10. G Dog says:

    So this is how the Minnesota Republicans planned to get out from under their $500,000 debt…..

    1. Kevin says:

      Ummm…G Diggity Dog….I believe that a month ago it was all over the media that there is a $500,000 surplus in the budget. Infact they were trying to decide what to do with the surplus…..and believe me…its not coming back to the tax payers…….you know I hate republicans almost as much as I hate castarted liberals…..but facts are facts…

      1. jackactionhero says:

        There is no surplus. It’s fictional money based on speculatory numbers.

        Take an Econ class and stop sounding so dumb.

      2. Todd W. Olson says:

        Um, Kevin, they’re talking about party finances, not the state budget. The MN GOP has a $500k Debt. That is to say, the GOP cannot pay its own bills. The irony is rich, thick and delicious. The party of “fiscal responsibility” cannot pay its own bills. At least they have that whole party of “family values” and “moral responsibility” thing going for them. Right?

        1. Kevin says:

          Thanks Todd…Got it. Oh an jackmeoff you have anger issues. Such an angry little glitter thrower……you should start a yoga for castarted males class…or maybe a knitting for male lovers….might calm you down a bit….

          1. jackactionhero says:

            Calling you out for having ZERO knowledge of basic economics is hardly indicative of any anger issue.

            However, you repeatedly calling me jackmeoff is a bit juvenile and unwarranted, so why don’t you grow up.

            A glitter thrower? Really? I wonder how embarrassed you’d be if a “glitter thrower” broke your arms and legs. I doubt you’d be able to do anything to stop it, and then said “glitter thrower” would sashay away leaving you as a greasy spot on the sidewalk. That would be hilarious to watch, Kevin. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

            1. Lady says:

              Testosterone at it’s finest. Simmer down now.

  11. Native Pride says:

    Amazing how jackaction and kevin sniff out the stories where the names are not Olson Peterson Gunderson or Anderson and start to spew their hatred based on what they assume is the case,….. however, when someone with an american sounding name produces child porn or molests someone or rams a schoolbus while drunk (all within the last week here)… the are absent. Seriously…. unless you are a member of a tribe, your name is foreign sounding to the rest of us “NATIVES”

    the both of you should give each others a reacharound and keep each other happy 🙂
