Feds: Bears’ Sam Hurd tried to buy huge amounts of cocaine, pot

Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd is facing federal drug charges.

Federal prosecutors filed a complaint against Hurd early Thursday. He’s in custody in Chicago.

According to the federal complaint, Hurd was arrested Wednesday after meeting with an undercover agent at a Chicago restaurant. The complaint says Hurd told the agent that he was interested in buying five to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area.

Hurd, a San Antonio native, played for five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and is in his first season with the Bears. He has contributed mostly on special teams, playing in 77 games overall with six starts and two career touchdowns. The former Northern Illinois star has played in 12 games this year, catching eight passes for 109 yards.

:eek:

That is a LOT of drugs!

Just seems like they missed a chance to make a real bust. If he's interested in buying that sort of quantity, then he has to have a connection with a pretty big distribution network. By going public with this prior to even selling the guy anything, they've blown any chance to do much of anything truly effective in their "war against drugs" (stupid anyway) besides ruin this guy's career.

Just doesn't seem to add up, but we'll see. It's their job, so I'll just assume they know what they're doing.

If he had such great connections, I'm not sure he would have been trying to buy shit from a police officer.

This is obviously as high as they could go up the ladder.

What's he supposed to do? IF the cop is SELLING him the drugs then the guy isn't exactly helping him find distributors.

1. Hurd told an undercover agent Wednesday night that he was looking to buy ”5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area.”

2. Hurd negotiated to pay $25,000 per kilogram for the cocaine and $450 per pound of the weed. So Hurd had the cash flow to pay for $575,000-$700,000 worth of drugs per week. That’s well over $2 million per month. (We’ll let you imagine how much he was bringing in or planning to bring in.)

3. The money Hurd was willing to spend was on top of what he was already purchasing elsewhere. Hurd told the informant that he currently distributed ”four kilograms of cocaine per week in the Chicago area, but that the supplier could not supply him with enough quantity.”

Hurd was trying to take his operation to another level.

4. Hurd first came on the police’s radar in July. After receiving a tip, police found a man with a bag filled with $88,000 in a canvas bag. The man said the money and car belonged to Hurd. It was Hurd’s car, and the receiver still attempted to get the money back.

This should have raised a red flag, but Hurd was too foolish or in too deep to realize he needed to slow down.

5. Hurd was looking for Mexican cell phones, because he believed authorities didn’t have the ability to track them.

6. This wasn’t a small operation. Hurd only dealt with “high level” deals; a co-conspirator handled more day-to-day stuff. Hurd allegedly had business as far away as California and had a fleet of vehicles.

Jay Ratliff has to be separated from Cowboys beat writer

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on December 15, 2011, 6:17 PM EST

AP
Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff had to be separated from ESPNDallas.com writer Calvin Watkins on Thursday when Ratliff didn’t appreciate the line of questioning.

Watkins is a well respected writer that has worked at the two major papers in town. He reportedly asked Ratliff about former teammate Sam Hurd’s arrest for drug trafficking and the conversation “quickly went South” according to Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

NFL Network had footage of the argument, which looked very close. The two men had to be kept apart while yelling at each other. The incident didn’t come as a total surprise to those who know Ratliff, who has apparently had a testy relationship with the media and has a moody personality.

Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was standing nearby and broke it down: “My money’s on Ratliff.”

Yea it seems to me that other than the transaction they got him on today, they don't have much. I bet he gets a Plaxico type of sentence and tries to come back to the league afterwards.

Yeah ... I don't comprehendo this either, really.

They're supposed to infiltrate for awhile, then get secret warrants for the NFL guy, the biker gang, and the Mexican cartel. Then, just before they make the bust, the CIA steps in and puts the kibosh on the whole deal on account of some special arrangement between the US and the Mexican government.

Or, you could just ruin everything by taking down the NFL.

By the way, I thought that the league had a drug-testing program in place?

(CBS) Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd, who was arrested Wednesday on federal drug charges, was a top drug dealer in Chicago and police have a list of NFL players who were supplied drugs by the receiver, a law enforcement source told 670 The Score.

The list is “in the double-digits”, according to the source.

How do you move your business to Chicago and not get a knock on the door from the top drug kingpin?

"Hurd hit authorities radar in July when a confidential informant told police that a man was attempting to obtain four kilograms of cocaine for an unknown buyer in the Dallas area. That man was later stopped by police with $88,000 in a canvas bag. He said that the car and the money belonged to Hurd. Police confiscated the money, and Hurd later contacted authorities trying to get the money back."

Excerpt from the Hurd Complaint - (link below)


Criminal Complaint: Case Number 3-11-MJ Filed Dec 15, 2011

United States District Court, Northern District of Texas

United States of America
V.
Samuel George Hurd, III

On August 15, 2011, HSI received additional information from Denton Police Department in Denton, Texas, that HURD was possibly associated to four individuals from California that were detained on July 25, 2011, with currency, narcotics, and weapons. A search of the text messages on the cellular telephones, revealed electronic communications with the detainees and a telephone number identified as being utilized by HURD and T.L. The text message content appeared to be consisent with norcotics traffgicking and possible money laundering.

HURD further stated that his co-conspirator is in charge of doing the majority of the deals as HURD focuses on the "higher-end" deals. HURD subsequently inquired if the UCA and the CI could provide him with Mexican cellular telephones, as HURD believed that law enforcement did not hhave the capability of "listening" to Mexican telephones.[/QUOTE]

The local office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is handling the investigation, authorities said.

Cocaine as a local anesthetic

Cocaine was historically useful as a topical anesthetic in eye and nasal surgery, although it is now predominantly used for nasal and lacrimal duct surgery. The major disadvantages of this use are cocaine's intense vasoconstrictor activity and potential for cardiovascular toxicity. Cocaine has since been largely replaced in Western medicine by synthetic local anesthetics such as benzocaine, proparacaine, lignocaine/xylocaine/lidocaine, and tetracaine though it remains available for use if specified. If vasoconstriction is desired for a procedure (as it reduces bleeding), the anesthetic is combined with a vasoconstrictor such as phenylephrine or epinephrine. In Australia it is currently prescribed for use as a local anesthetic for conditions such as mouth and lung ulcers. Some ENT specialists occasionally use cocaine within the practice when performing procedures such as nasal cauterization. In this scenario dissolved cocaine is soaked into a ball of cotton wool, which is placed in the nostril for the 10–15 minutes immediately prior to the procedure, thus performing the dual role of both numbing the area to be cauterized and also vasoconstriction. Even when used this way, some of the used cocaine may be absorbed through oral or nasal mucosa and give systemic effects.

In 2005, researchers from Kyoto University Hospital proposed the use of cocaine in conjunction with phenylephrine administered in the form of an eye drop as a diagnostic test for Parkinson's disease.

See, it is all for valid use.

Jay Ratliff has to be separated from Cowboys beat writer

Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff had to be separated from ESPNDallas.com writer Calvin Watkins on Thursday when Ratliff didn’t appreciate the line of questioning.

Watkins is a well respected writer that has worked at the two major papers in town. He reportedly asked Ratliff about former teammate Sam Hurd’s arrest for drug trafficking and the conversation “quickly went South” according to Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

NFL Network had footage of the argument, which looked very close. The two men had to be kept apart while yelling at each other. The incident didn’t come as a total surprise to those who know Ratliff, who has apparently had a testy relationship with the media and has a moody personality.

Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was standing nearby and broke it down: “My money’s on Ratliff.”

LMAO

Wish one of the other networks would do another NFL weekly series like ESPN did several years ago. Anyone else remember it? It was on for one year and then the NFL supposedly forced them to discontinue it

Playmakers? Yea, ESPN was forced to cancel it the NFL was so pissed off.

Was there ever any doubt?

And I'm curious. Why do they mention Michael Vick and delete the name of (presumably) Marcus Vick?
