Bou appeared in federal court on September 2 for a bond hearing, where the judge denied him bail. The suspect will return for arraignment on September 22, when he will hear the formal charges against him and enter a plea.
Authorities alleged Bou oversaw eight deliveries using semis to haul drugs from California to Canada over the past year. They said he personally delivered packages containing the narcotics to shippers. Officials uncovered his actions by tracking the suspect to two Alhambra stash houses. He allegedly packed the substances into duffle bags and containers that would go into the passenger areas of the large trucks.
Agents were able to seize a total of 1,008 pounds of methamphetamine and 333 kilograms of cocaine in the sting operation. They estimated the drugs were worth about $9.8 million in the United States but projected the scheme netted much more as the product reached Canada.
