Texas Bust: Daughter of DEA Chief Called ‘Adorable Drug Kingpin’

70

The head of the Drug Enforcement Administration in Beaumont, Texas, Bill Furay, has long been considered a heavy hitter within the DEA’s underground world of ruthless narcotic officers. And while he’s been famously quoted, telling those who’d listen, “You don’t see many drug traffickers retire,” his 19-year-old daughter Sarah, apparently never got that sermon.

According to a post on Raw Story, the Texas DEA agent worked diligently at creating havoc and mayhem for the Mexican drug cartel along the border. Becoming “the implacable scourge of drug dealers,” and someone who was a “ familiar presence at triumphant DEA press conferences announcing mass arrests and seizures of contraband and proceeds.”

On his way to the top of the DEA food chain, Furay led a large-scale drug bust called “Operation Blood Loss” in 2009, which boosted his professional career within the DEA hierarchy; eventually leading to another massive DEA drug bust in 2010, this time taking on the Sinaloa drug cartel’s activity along the US border.

And he’s apparently been milking that notoriety ever sense…

Most recently, Furay explained his antidrug crusade by pointing out to a group of reporters the obvious, “You don’t see many drug traffickers retire. Either they end up in prison, or they end up dead.” With the irony fueled subtext of his comment underlining the fact that it’s DEA agents like him that turn up the pressure on street level drug dealers.

Looking to follow in her father’s footsteps (sort of), Sarah also created an elevated name for herself within her chosen industry.

The seemingly ironic thing is… she played for the other team. Slinging coke, speed, acid, and whatever else she could get her hands on.

When the daughter’s bedroom was raided, police confiscated “31.5 grams of coke packaged for sale, 126 grams of some chronic marijuana, 29 ‘ecstasy’ tablets, methamphetamine and 60 doses of a drug similar to LSD.

Unfortunately for Sarah, thanks to DEA agents like her dear old dad, the Lone Star State is known for handing down extremely harsh sentences for drug-related crimes.

Provided her father doesn’t pull any strings – Sarah is now staring down the barrel of at least three felony charges. And according to the Raw Story post, she could face up to 215 years in prison and a fine of $30,000.

As this dysfunctional family drama continues to unwind, one can’t help but wonder if Bill Furay’s understanding of the war on drugs has changed? Particularly now that his own daughter may soon be calling the Texas prison system home for the foreseeable future.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.

    End this madness legalize.

  • Tha Amish One

    This is getting out of hand. 215 years shouldn’t be a possibility.

    • lovingc

      It would be alright if they could keep her alive for the intire period. But being these people are anything but close to God they can’t.

    • Valient

      With our all new cryo-prisons, term limits will be a thing of the past! We’ll simply deep freeze prisoners and wake them every month or so to remind them that they’re still serving their term. With our direct brain interface we’ll be able to make them aware of their imprisonment while in stasis as well. Extra suffering for your pleasure! Perhaps we’ll show them videos of how the outside world has progressed so greatly while we keep them locked up for 200-500 years for the terrible, terrible crimes of doing drugs that we don’t approve of, having sex with each other for money, and being homeless.

  • Gediminas P.

    There is a movie where one of the stories is about the DEA chief, whose daughter turns out to be a drug addict. Traffic (2000)

    • Alex Garcia

      Happens to take place in Texas too! HAHAHA

      • Brian

        No it doesn’t. The Robert Wakefield (drug czar) plotline takes place in Ohio.

    • Anthony

      Yea a junkie not a DEALER. THAT DEA DAIGHTER SHOULD GET A FEW YEARS BEHIND BARS. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • Nicholas VanLandingham

    Ooo…Ouch! That’s gotta hurt. Man karma is a bitch. I wonder how they caught her?

  • PeterTosh

    Think about how many lives have been ruined by this a-hole who enforces immoral laws with the vigor of a religious zealot. Like a previous commenter said “karma is a bitch”…

  • Hiyunnomiko

    Puh-leeze. Nothing is going to happen to her. Her Daddy is the head honcho DEA in a small, backwater city in Texass. Accountability is only for poor, unimportant people.

    • Alex Garcia

      Forreal though I was thinking the same thing.

    • Jon Williams

      That is why she has that huge smile in her mug shot.

      • SD Herban Legends

        That is obviously not a mug shot

    • You obviously don’t live in Texas…

      • Assunta Bianchini

        I do, and feel the same way.

      • SD Herban Legends

        You should make a page about stupid shit that bush said. It would have a lot more material seen Obama is very intellectual

        • Redwolf Conchoman

          Are YOU serious? Obozo said something INTELLIGENT?!

      • wolftongue

        Thank fucing god. Tx. has pointed boots designed for stepping on cock roches in the corners of their adobes. Tumble weed fucing hole.

        • Bull Sheise

          The boots are called shit kickers.

          • jimheffner

            Still think Austin isn’t part of Texas.

    • Redwolf Conchoman

      REALLY! Look at what transpired in WACO on May 17th this year!!!

  • Johnny N Ariel Slone

    215 years?? That’s longer than a murderer. I think that could be a typo.

    • “The Lancer has the Answer”

      They can charge you for each tab of ecstasy separately.

      • Scott Clarkin

        and its funny because Ecstasy only killed people after it was made illegal.
        I hope they throw the book at the girl, but likely, her dad will pull some strings

  • Arthur Dent

    At 19 she was not doing this on her own.. maybe she was running daddy’s side business?

    • JaysonMM

      Bingo! We have a winner.

    • Strider

      Really. If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge I want to sell to you. What she was holding is small-time and easily affordable. For all we know she may have been dealing some of that on the buy now- pay later system.

  • Social Conservative

    Normally I feel for the victims of our unjust drug laws but this is one case where I say lock her up and throw away the key! Her old man being the prohibitionist he is sealed her fate far as I’m concerned. Guilty by association, period.

    • AntiIgnorant

      She shouldn’t suffer for having an idiot father… come on… Hasn’t she suffered enough with the embarrassment of having him as a father already?

    • kbeth

      Maybe this was her way of getting at the old man….and gaining some respect from her peers. It had to suck being the daughter of the man who busted people for drugs.

  • Dave

    Don’t blame this girl for her dad.

  • kbeth

    Time to get rid of all the old hard line DEA agents, or even better get rid of the DEA, that is the one agency we don’t need. We need a different approach to drugs because their war on drugs has been a complete failure. I don’t feel a bit sorry for the dad, this has got to be a huge embarrassment, but I hate to see his daughter’s life ruined.

  • Michael Moulds

    I don’t really care about the subject matter of
    this article, but I would like to extend a grateful hug to the author, for using the phrase “chronic marijuana”. I knew exactly what he meant. “High potency marijuana” just doesn’t cover it.

    • lovingc

      Cronic is just a slang name for cannabis.

      • JaysonMM

        Chronic is a slang term for dro or high quality cannabis 🙂

  • Lonerwithaboner420

    Wonder how she got her hands on the drugs? Daddy’s busts maybe?

  • Phil Galbreath

    Kingpin? Hardly. A litlle over an ounce of coke, 4 plus ounces of cannabis, some extasy, meth and probably some research chemical doses do not make a drug kingpin, just a well stocked low level drug dealer. It is rather curious that dad didn’t figure out that she had a lot of extra spending money

    • Neil Merchant

      It’s pretty absurd when you look at the penalties in most states for for these amounts. Trafficking an ounce of coke carries harsher penalties than choking someone out, beating someone and putting them in the hospital, kidnapping, or raping a child. The only thing worse you could do in the eyes of the law is murder someone.

      • Tiffany Thompson

        Sad part is, intoxicated manslaughter only gets you 15-20….her punishment is way more extreme than that. Our justice system is crazy

        • lovingc

          What justice system? We have an I got’cha system.

          • Sally Oh

            Just Us system.

        • Anthony

          NO JUSTICE FOR PPL WHO DO NOT HAVE A DEA OR FBI RELATIVE TO SUPPLY THEM OR GO GET THEM OUT OF JAIL ON SOME RIDICULOUS BOND. FELONYS LIKE HERS CARRY NO BOND. WTF IS GOING ON. GOVERNMENT SHOULD INVESTIGATE HER DEA DADDY. FOR ALL WE KNOW HE SUPPLYS HER WITH ALL THE DRUGS. THNK BOUT IT. IT WOULD BE THAT EASY. PUNK BITCH DEA DAD CONFISCATED SONE DOPE, GIVES IT TO HIS DAUGHTER TO SELL. PERFECT CRIME.

      • Anthony

        EXACTLY BUT THIS LITTLE DEA BITCH DAUGHTER GETS OUT ON BOBD???? WTF!!!! I THINK AN INVESTIGATION SHOULD GO ON TOO SEE WHAT HER DAD DOES

    • JeffHB

      Queenpin. Well, maybe Princesspin.

    • Anthony

      Her punk ass daddy from the dea supplys her. Come on.

  • Kenneth Hawkins Jr

    All I no is at age 19 an looking at 215yrs I wouldn’t be smiling that big in that photo cause I heard Texas has very strict time in jail on drugs not only that labled kingpin yes if she had kilos but like 4different drugs an the biggest was Chronic probably just helping her friends using herself who knows but I bet big daddy is mad as hell so long all have a goodone

  • AntiIgnorant

    I bet this DEA scum will understand now that drugs are a social issue and not a criminal issue. I feel bad for his daughter… decades in prison for small amounts of drugs. Just messed up. Violent crimes should get people in jail… not people’s vices and habits.

  • AntiIgnorant

    Hey, I think the DEA should seize the house and all the belongings. Definitely need to seize all the assets.

  • J.T.

    She’s screwed, and I find it to be very sad another young persons life will probably be destroyed by the war on drugs. As the father of an 18 year old young ladie, this scares the crap out of me, and I take no joy in seeing this happen to anyone (even this guy that has been doing the same to countless families over the years). Texas is nothing short of barbaric with their drug sentences; I don’t know if they’ve taken it off the books yet but they have/had an old law on the books that stated you could receive a life sentence for giving a joint to a friend for free.

  • SaintKristopher

    Let’s see if her dad is a man of convictions. Let’s see if he will make an example out of her. I rather doubt it.

  • dirtsurfr

    The DEA should seize the house all their belongings and all of their Bank accounts to

    to start. Then investigate the head of the house for conspiracy.

  • Eric Grady

    I think people need to keep getting bombarded wit statistics. The rates of marajuana addiction (very rare), compared to alcoholism ~4-7% , oxy ?, I think pepole in the mainstream just lack education.

  • lovingc

    What goes around come around Daddy.

  • Rebecca Anne Inkster

    He will rig the system and get her off, guaranteed! After all, not only is she his daughter, she’s a pretty white girl. The point of the drug war is to attack the poor and people of color!

  • abelinclon69

    215 years?? Why, do they think she found the fountain of youth in those drugs?

  • WakeUp

    She wasn’t dealing herb, she was dealing hardcore drugs and should be punished. Not with prison though.

  • jizzmasterzero

    She would of got jumped if she pulled this around my neck of the woods.

  • lilly_von_schtupp

    D’oh!

  • monitor

    she is cute though

  • rev_dave

    I’m betting she cuts a deal and gets probation.

  • E pluribus unum

    Breaking badly…

  • E pluribus unum

    The dude looks like Adam Sandler

  • Ms Pooh

    Just another cute drug dealer!

  • Anthony

    I think we all should sign a petition yo make sure that girl gets a few years for the narcotics she had. For all we know her daddy supplys this little bitch & that is why she got a bond. We all know for felonys like gera, there would be no bond. OR DO I HAVE TO HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER IN THE DEA SOBI CAN SLANG COKE & GET AWAY WITH IT.
    That girl should be locked up like any other drug dealer out there that would get caught with what she had.

  • Holly

    I predict a storm of more “affluenza” on the way!!!

  • Mik

    Quit messing with the poor girl, she is just another victim of an oppressive system.

  • Kevin Perry

    Interesting that the rules in the last few days with the DEA are
    suddenly Changing is it because “the DEA confirmed that Sarah Furay, the
    daughter of DEA Special Agent Bill Furay, was arrested in College
    Station, TX on charges related to drug trafficking, And the pressure
    that the DEA is finally finding the drug that they are fighting to keep
    illegal is actually the patent for marijuana the DEA has in its mitts.
    oops did i spill the beans, YES ! and it is funny that it is said the DEA is trying to keep it from kids but the pusher is the child of the head honcho in TEXAS.

  • HowieWowie

    She’s got the affluenza, she won’t do time.

  • BE Weaver

    Really hope she is seen as an example but I won’t hold my breath I see her poor boyfriend being the fall guy
