BNET seizes drugs and cash
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - A joint investigation between the U.S. Border Patrol-Blythe Office and the Blythe Narcotic Enforcement Team (BNET) resulted in the arrest of Brent Killian, 31, from Murray, Utah, and the seizure of $81,800 in cash and approximately 2.5 pounds of suspected methamphetamine the afternoon of Dec. 5.

The investigation began about 12:30 p.m., when U.S. Border Patrol agents were conducting immigration checks at the Blythe Greyhound bus station. An agent was contacted by a bus passenger and reported that the back of the bus had an odor of marijuana. A narcotic trained K-9 was called to sniff-search the bus and alerted to a carry-on bag in one aisle and another bag in the aisle directly to the front. The bags were searched and the money and methamphetamine were located.

According to BNET investigators, he investigation determined Killian was in possession of the bag that contained the money and evidence indicative of criminal activities. Killian was booked into the Blythe Jail for transportation of criminal proceeds. The person who possessed the suspected methamphetamine has not been determined and the case is on-going.

BNET is a multi-agency narcotic task force participated in by law enforcement agencies in the Blythe-Palo Verde Valley area. BNET's primary mission is to disrupt narcotic sales and diminish the availability of those drugs, thereby increasing public safety.

Citizens are encouraged to report drug activity or information that could lead into the arrest of subjects involved with any criminal activity. Please call the Colorado River Station at (760) 921-7900 or Blythe Police Department at (760) 922-6111.
