Nine more drug dealers are now off of the streets in a Colorado drug bust. The Moffat County Sheriff’s department and the All Crimes Enforcement Team or ACET concluded one of the largest narcotic investigations the area has ever been involved in. Other parties involved in the bust were the Craig police, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, and the Fourteenth Judicial Attorney’s Office. They served a search warrant at approximately 8:00 p.m. on March 25, 2008.
As a result of the investigation, a total of nine Mexican Nationals, one legal and 8 illegal, were suspected to be operating the largest drug trafficking organization in the Northwest section of Colorado. Each was charged with distribution of Methamphetamine and/or cocaine. They were also charged with one weapons charge and possession of paraphernalia.
They were all residing in the Craig area, but they have been suspected of dealing drugs in Rout and Moffat and other counties throughout Northwest Colorado.
Now we can rest assured that even more drug dealers are off the streets and that lives have possibly been saved. This is a huge accomplishment in the war against drugs.
