A Timeline of Events that lead to Sam Hurd’s arrestDecember 15, 2011


Here is a timeline of the events that led to Sam Hurd’s arrest and other key points from the official Complaint against Hurd filed in Federal Court in Texas.

Here are some key points from The Complaint that I complied from TheBigLead.com and Pro Football Talk.

July – while still a member of the Dallas Cowboys, Hurd was interviewed by authorities after a bag of money belonging to him was taken into custody. A conspirator of Hurd’s was busted, through a coordinated operation made to look like a routine traffic stop, while driving Hurd’s vehicle, which contained a bag with $88,000 in it. The authorities released the co-conspirator and retained the money, which Hurd then claimed. Hurd told the authorities that he had put the money in the bag and left it in the car, while it was in for maintenance and detailing.

August – authorities received information that Hurd was tied to four individuals taken into custody in California. Text messages on their phones, received from Hurd and his co-conspirator, were consistent with drug trafficking.

September/December – Hurd spoke with a confidential informant in mid September, and then again in early December, when Hurd was in Chicago. After multiple conversations, the informant discussed traveling from Texas to Chicago where Hurd was hoping to set up a “long term relationship”.

December 14th - Hurd met the informant on December 14th, at a restaurant in Chicago, where Hurd stated that he wanted 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine per week, and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week, and was going to pay $25,000 per kilo of cocaine and $450 per pound of marijuana. Doing some quick math, that is a cash outlay of at least $675,000 per week by Hurd. He also told the officer that he was already moving 4 kilos a week in the Chicago area and that his current supplier couldn’t keep up with his demands.

Hurd negotiated to pay $25,000 per kilogram for the cocaine and $450 per pound of the weed. So Hurd had the cash flow to pay for $575,000-$700,000 worth of drugs per week. That’s well over $2 million per month. (We’ll let you imagine how much he was bringing in or planning to bring in.)

The money Hurd was willing to spend was on top of what he was already purchasing elsewhere. Hurd told the informant that he currently distributed ”four kilograms of cocaine per week in the Chicago area, but that the supplier could not supply him with enough quantity.”

Hurd was looking for Mexican cell phones, because he believed authorities didn’t have the ability to track them.

This wasn’t a small operation. Hurd only dealt with “high level” deals; a co-conspirator handled more day-to-day stuff. Hurd allegedly had business as far away as California and had a fleet of vehicles.

And….it gets worse….there is a report that several NFL players (in double digits) were getting their drugs from Hurd. Check it out here.

That’s all I got,
