Drugs have been a big time money maker for quite some time now.

However, it seems in 2021, Amarillo has seen its share of big time drug busts increase. It's a troubling trend, especially as more drugs increase in popularity and use.

On the heels of yet another big time drug bust in Center City, I wanted to dig into some of the biggest busts of the year.

We've seen some big drug busts here that were federally charged in the end. All of these busts involved drug amounts of street values over $250,000. The unknown street value ones were over these amounts as well, we just don't have an exact number. Hopefully, this trend can reverse itself.

From Friona to Lubbock, there's plenty of bad behavior on display throughout the 806 in 2021.

Take a look at what these hellions have gotten themselves into:
