After being seized during a methamphetamine raid, this beautiful 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – complete with racing modifications – was renamed “Coptimus Prime” by a young local Transformers fan named Chandler.
The raid, which took place in June, 2011, was the culmination of a year-long investigation and marked the end a large meth trafficking cell, linked to La Familia Michoacana, which moved about 25-pounds of pure meth every month in the San Antonio Metro area. Police estimate the gang netted about $4.5-million per month for La Familia.
15 people were arrested in San Antonio, New Braunfels, Austin, Atlanta, and California. The raids yielded drugs, high-caliber weapons, cars, cash, jewelry, and other assets totaling $500,000, along with a Guadalupe River campground valued at $1-million.
Despite his shady past, Coptimus Prime will now be using his powers for good, assisting police as they build relationships with the most important people in the whole world – our children.
