Enormous drugs bust

According to the Mexican army, 15 tons of pure methamphetamine were seized at the ranch, an amount equivalent to half of all meth seizures worldwide in 2009.

The stash is thought to be worth $4 billion. There were no people found on the ranch or arrests made, although it appeared 12 to 15 people worked there. (AP Photo/Bruno Gonzalez)
