CBS News in San Francisco revealed that two brothers operating a taco truck, in Olivehurst, California were arrested for illegally distributing methamphetamine and marijuana.

According to the report, the taco truck was more of disguise for the twosome’s actual money-making enterprise, selling illicit substances.

As part of their sting operation, aptly titled, Operation Dirty Taco, police officers discovered that the two brothers, Ernesto and Juan Paez, were serving up methamphetamine in the same styrofoam containers as they served their tacos in.

For approximately three months, officers investigated the Paez brothers business practices, which revealed that the brothers provided customers with either marijuana or methamphetamine.

Yes, you read that correctly, customers walked up to the food truck to place orders for marijuana or methamphetamine.

Upon a search of the brother’s home, officers located as much as $300,000.00 worth of marijuana, not to mention, $8,500.00 in cash, and $11,000.00 in methamphetamine. Apparently the Paez brothers were running quite the drug enterprise.

Officers have yet to release details concerning how they discovered that the Paez brothers were engaging in illegal distribution of illicit drugs via their taco truck.
