Comments Off on Northern Colorado raids by the Weld County Drug Task Force lead to seizure of more than 20 pounds of Methamphetamine

The Weld County Drug Task Force conducted raids Wednesday that resulted in the seizure of more than 22 pounds of methamphetamine, over one pound of heroin and more than $100,000 in cash.

The raids were the result of a six-month investigation conducted by the task force, in partnership with the Greeley Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Weld County Sheriff’s Office and Evans Police Department. The law enforcement officials said they were investigating the movement and sale of large quantities of methamphetamine in the northern Colorado area.

During this investigation, officials said, a total of eight search warrants were served in four jurisdictions from Denver to Loveland and Greeley. More than 12 arrests were made.

“This is the first stage of a continuing operation,” Greeley Police Chief Jerry Garner said. “Our goal is to make it a lot harder to sell poison in Northern Colorado.”

Officials said the investigation began with a minor buy from a known dealer. Through the use of confidential informants and undercover officers the investigation of the network of individuals involved in the trafficking of drugs into Greeley, Evans, Johnstown and Loveland was initiated.

Three of the people arrested, police said, were also indicted on federal drug trafficking charges.
