Bend cops have busted the owners of a Galveston Avenue restaurant for selling meth, and neighbors are shocked - shocked! - that such a thing could have happened on the Westside.

 


Police arrested brothers Damian and Julian Castaneda-Nino, proprietors of Rigoberto's Taco Restaurant, on Monday in a raid on their restaurant and home. The cops allegedly confiscated more than five ounces of meth, two ounces of marijuana, about $40,000 in cash and six guns.

In the best American entrepreneurial tradition, the brothers allegedly were selling meth right out of the restaurant's drive-thru window.

"I'm really shocked that something like that would be in our neighborhoods," KTVZ quoted one Westside neighbor as saying.

Well, gosh, who wouldn't be shocked? Swarthy guys with moustaches peddling drugs (and METH, no less - how yucky, how déclassé!) is something that's simply not supposed to happen on the Westside, where the homes are Craftsman-cute and the residents treat their toned, Spandex-clad bodies as temples. It's only supposed to happen on the Eastside, where all the ugly shopping centers and crappy apartment complexes are located and the obese denizens pollute their bodies with fast-food burgers and other toxins.

But maybe we shouldn't be too stunned; it was inevitable that something like this would happen once we let a Safeway and a McDonald's open on the Westside. What's next in the process of Westside degradation? People might start leaving their Christmas decorations up until March.
