There were two big busts recently at the El Centro Sector Border Patrol station in Indio, California.

Agents there seized heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine from one driver at a checkpoint along Highway 86.

Two other seizures resulted in the discovery of cocaine and money.

The heroin, coke, meth bust resulted in a street value of $445,000.

The cocaine bust netted $570,000 in drugs.

If you watch NatGeo’s Border Wars, you see that these results are frequent, and agents are confiscating massive amounts of drugs at the border.

Cartels are trying anything they can to sneak drugs across the border. A recent article reported that cartels are hitting the water to bring drugs in small submarine vehicles.

Drug mules also run drugs across the border in Arizona and Texas. These types of drug runs are profiled on the Border Wars show.

And we’ve seen a growing number of cars used in drug smuggling. Drugs aren’t simply stashed in the trunk.

Cartels are embedding them in the gas tanks, and hollow, manufactured walls, and linings in cars.

Great work by the border patrol and customs agents.

Ryan Leaf says spending the last few weeks in jail has been the best time of his life in the last 15 years.

Despite being a brief NFL star, his comments are not that surprising.

He has been battling prescription drug abuse for years.

The former NFL quarterback could spend the next 15 months locked down in Montana.

He first would go to a locked down treatment center, then on to a pre-release living center.

Leaf has had a running battle with painkiller addiction for the last several years.

Hopefully this next year and a half help clean him up for good.

By now you’ve probably heard about the fallen Leaf, Ryan Leaf.

The former NFL #2 pick was popped not once, but twice this week for breaking into home and stealing prescription drugs.

Leaf was arrested in Montana and one set of reports indicated that he had Hydrocodone that was not in his name.

Authorities in Texas are already trying to revoke his probation there on unrelated drug charges.

It’s been a sad downward spiral for the former QB. But he’s one of the estimated 7,000,000 million people in America hooked on prescription drugs.

It’s pretty clear that his life is mimicking his career in the NFL. The ups and downs of drug use have him sitting in jail for what could be 30 days.

Leaf needs help. Leaf needs to turn his life around. If he has any friends left from the NFL, they need to come help him. He needs to beat his addictions and he needs the support for it.

It’s easy to rally around your quarterback when he’s leading you down the field in a game winning drive. But now that the roar of the crowd has been silenced and the game is long over, Leaf finds himself with an unsportsman like penalty that could have facing serious jail time.
