Meth suspect takes plea deal


Niagara Gazette — The Falls narcotics investigators evacuated nearby neighbors and called for assistance from Falls firefighters and the DEA. Firefighters stood by during the search because some of the chemicals used to manufacture meth can be explosive.

Among the items taken from Velazquez’s garage was a bottle used to mix meth that had apparently exploded and melted into a glass mirror. DEA agents described that lab as being like ones they commonly find.

DEA agents, dressed in Hazmat suits, moved all the contents of the garage outside and a DEA clean-up contractor, from Pittsburgh, was called-in to finish decontaminating the area.

A week after the discovery of Velazquez’s lab, another lab was found in the Town of Niagara.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
