Federal charges have been filed against a 33-year-old man who allegedly intended to receive a half-pound of methamphetamine by mail last week at his home near Roscoe Village.
The drugs were intercepted by authorities and Steven Besic was arrested minutes after he retrieved a dummy replacement package planted by investigators in a mailbox outside his home last Friday in the 2100 block of West Fletcher, according to a federal complaint signed by a U.S. Postal Inspector.
In a 10-page complaint, the postal inspector said authorities at O’Hare International Airport intercepted an Express Mail package addressed to Besic and his company—“Things and Things”—last Wednesday. After determining the return address and associated phone numbers were bogus, postal inspectors received a search warrant for the package which contained a half-pound of suspected meth, according to the complaint.
While executing the search warrant inside Besic’s home, postal inspectors recovered an ounce of packaged meth that was sitting on a digital scale, $975 cash, four ounces of suspected meth from a nightstand, along with small amounts of MDMA, mushrooms, cocaine base, and several bottles of suspected GHB, according to the affidavit.
Besic is charged with one federal felony count of attempting to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheila Finnegan ordered Besic held without bail until his next court date on March 1.
Ordering up bulk quantities of meth through standard mail, huh?
Anyways yeah, this guy is a fucking moron, that goes without say. Cook your meth in a garden unit out in Garfield Park or some shit like you’re supposed to. That’s meth cooking 101.
I did like his cover up though. If his goal was to look like the exact opposite of a big time drug dealer, he nailed that part. This looks like a dude who should be prancing around Lakeview all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree, not slinging the hardest drugs on the market.
That said, all he needed to do was get the logistics part down. Maybe he should have called me back when I was slinging freight, could have gotten him a great rate on a full truck load of whatever he was looking to move.
But anyways I’m not going to get into all of that. This blog is just an excuse to go over the greatest moments of the greatest character in the greatest TV show ever, Breaking Bad.
5. “I am the one who knocks”
Fuck you Skyler! Bitch bitch bitch, nag nag nag. Always getting in the way of Heisenberg’s work, whether it be paying off the IRS for her fuckbuddy or telling him what kind of business to launder his money through. Just shut the fuck up and let the man cook.
4. “This…. is not meth”
How much of a rush did old man Heisenberg get from showing up that lunatic Tuco? Probably was rock hard this entire scene. Love how Walt had to peak his head in here too with his “fulminated mercury” comment.
3. “You’re goddamn right”
Does anyone love themselves more than Heisenberg loves Heisenberg? He straight up got off on people fearing him. True gangster. At this point of the show Walt was no longer around, it was all Heisenberg.
2. “Stay out of my territory”
This might have been the first true appearance of Heisenberg the entire series. Just a completely different person from the docile Walter White. The background music is pretty fucking bad ass and sets the scene perfectly. Chills on chills after watching this, and the show totally took off after it as well.
Such a powerful fucking scene. But who was saving Jesse? Was it Walter or Heisenberg? Anytime I see this episode I have that debate with myself. Nevertheless this was, in my opinion, the best scene of the TV show. It was the first time I was like, “yeah this show is fucking incredible” and couldn’t wait until the next episode.
The ending of Breaking Bad was the one time in a TV show I’ve loved that ended perfectly, though I’m holding out hope that GoT will be the same. Every great show that I’ve loved ended pretty bad; Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Entourage, etc. all had pretty brutal final episodes. So I’d be remiss not to include it here as at least a bonus, though it could be considered by some to be the best scene of the whole show.
There are probably 2 dozen other scenes that could qualify for this list. What a great fucking show.
