Like many families in Miami, Nelson Valeriano Rodriguez and Nelson Angel Rodriguez were running a father and son business together. Thier's just happened to be a drug ring. Miami-Dade police busted the pair yesterday after receiving an anonymous tip.

A tipster informed police that the duo was dealing marijuana out of a home owned by the father at 761 NW 132nd Place. Police set up surveillance on Tuesday and soon discovered that the pair was dealing a lot more than pot. They watched two men knock on the door and exchange money for what officers suspected was drugs.

Police approached the home's patio as the 33-year-old son, Nelson A. Rodriguez, was conducting another deal. The son stiffened up when he noticed the officer and tried to hit the cop. Another officer, struck Rodriguez and he was quickly cuffed.

The elder Rodriguez consented to a search of the home. Inside police found 23 guns, including nine handguns and 14 rifles.

Another pair of scumbags trying to play in the big leagues. I'd be willing to bet some bigger fish ratted them out to the police. Will these idiots never learn?

Gonna go out on a limb here and suspect most of those weapons aren't exactly in operational condition.

"He was released on $5,000 bond."

$50,000.  You get your news from elsewhere and you can't even copy it correctly.
