BOULDER, Colo. — Officers hit pay dirt when they raided a suspected Ecstasy lab in a home here Tuesday.
They found enough chemicals to make 50,000 to 80,000 tabs of Ecstasy with a street value of up to $3.2 million, said John Cohen, special agent for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
In the four years prior, officials in the area had seized about 2,500 tabs from wholesalers and dealers.
