The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued as press release today about a big-time drug runner. They seized his home, vehicles, cash, artwork, and dope; including $1.5 million from a rented SUV travelling from PA to CA and also $2.1 million dollars cash in a fishtank!

The DHS announcement stated, in part:

"Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) Philadelphia special agents seized nearly $1.2 million in cash from large-scale drug trafficker's rental vehicle as it headed from Pennsylvania to California. Ronald Belciano received more than 5 years in federal prison for money laundering and drug trafficking. Bottom: About $2.4 million was found hidden in the fish tank at the Villanova residence of large-scale drug trafficker Ronald Belciano’s home. He received 63 months in federal prison for drug trafficking and money laundering.

More than $5 million in cash and assets were seized during the investigation of large-scale drug trafficker Ronald Belciano, age 42, of Newtown Square (formerly Villanova), Pennsylvania. He was sentenced Tuesday to 63 months in prison by a federal judge in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for conspiracy to distribute 100 kilograms of marijuana in and through central Pennsylvania and conspiracy to commit money laundering between December 2007 and November 2011.

In 2011, Belciano rented a vehicle and filled it with nearly $1.2 million. He paid a co-conspirator to drive it from Pennsylvania to California to pay for marijuana grown on Belciano’s 190-acre property and to purchase from other growers in Northern California. HSI special agents obtained a search warrant for one of Belciano’s homes, located in Villanova, Pennsylvania, and found another nearly $2.6 million in cash along with 1.5 kilograms of marijuana.

Special agents working with other law enforcement later located 68 kilograms of marijuana, $316,800 in U.S. currency and 59 paintings valued at more than $600,000 in a storage locker as well as at a co-conspirator’s farm in Douglasville, Pennsylvania, used to warehouse and distribute the marijuana transported from California to Pennsylvania. Belciano was indicted by a grand jury in November 2011 and pleaded guilty in February 2014.

The assets seized and forfeited in this case included: his Villanova residence; a 190-acre property in Laytonville, California; artwork obtained with proceeds of the illegal activity and later appraised at over $619,000; and $4,084,060 in U.S. currency.

"Today's sentencing concludes a long-term investigation on a drug trafficker who was living on the Main Line of Philadelphia," said John Kelleghan, HSI Philadelphia special agent in charge.

  • In October, California launched its' own Pilot Program To Charge Drivers By The Mile. The author admits that the law will "burden families." Carpool lanes in Southern California, which were paid for years ago by taxpayers, are now being turned into toll roads to fleece the people. Orange County, CA alone was issuing 15,000 photo citations PER DAY after motorists were confused about the new system.
