Operation Task Force Arkansas

DEA

The Drug Enforcement Administration, in conjunction with federal and state prosecutors, announced today an unprecedented enforcement action spanning across the state of Arkansas in a combined effort to reverse the horrible effects on communities produced by violent drug traffickers.  As part of this effort, dubbed Operation Task Force Arkansas, the takedown operation resulted in the arrest of 1,260 individuals on federal and state charges and the seizure of 211 firearms, over 37 kilograms of methamphetamine, 1,293 pounds of marijuana, 47 kilograms of cocaine, almost one kilogram of heroin, 228,913 controlled prescription pills, $357,399 in U.S. currency and 32 vehicles.

“With this operation, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies have severely disrupted multiple drug trafficking organizations operating in Arkansas” said DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge Justin King.  “These enforcement actions will have an immediate impact on the drug trafficking organizations ability to conduct business as usual.  The operation culminated in enforcement actions taken over the course of several days, which exemplify the outstanding cooperation among law enforcement agencies here in our state.”    MORE
