Some Illegal Drugs Now Off Indy’s Streets
More than 40 people were arrested following a two-year investigation into a large-volume drug trafficking ring. IMPD says at least six-kilos of cocaine, marijuana, various guns—including two that were stolen—and vehicles were confiscated. In addition, $198,000 in cash was confiscated as well.
“Violence and illegal drugs are closely associated. These arrests should positively impact our neighborhoods and we will continue to build on this successful venture,” said Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Chief, Rick Hite. “Collaborating with our law enforcement partners at the Indiana State Police, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Indiana National Guard Counterdrug Task Force is essential to our continued success.”
Police served search warrants on at least five addresses throughout the city in this effort.
The suspects nabbed in “Operation Family Ties” range in age from their 20′s through their 50′s. They are now behind bars with charges still pending for some.
