During the arrest of Aaron and Alfonzo Castro, officers seized about 100 boxes of first-edition collectible comic books. One of the comics alone is worth $3,500. The total value of the seized collection is around a half a million dollars. There were some first-edition Superman and Batman titles. The Castro brothers allegedly arranged for weekly, multiple-pound shipments of the meth from Phoenix, Arizona. The brothers then allegedly distributed the drugs to a network of dealers around the Denver area. Authorities allege that the brothers used females ("drug mules") to hide methamphetamine inside their vagina. The female delivers would then transport the meth to a series of houses where dealers would allegedly further distribute the drug.
Of the 41 defendants, 40 are in custody. The Castros are currently guests of the Adams County jail on $1 million bond.
Keep in mind as we remember Senator Ted Kennedy, that all suspects, whether they be accused of drug dealing or simply bad politics, are to be considered innocent unless otherwise proven guilty in a court of law.
