DEA executes warrants on Arizona Indian Reservation
PHOENIX – Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Doug Coleman recently announced the execution of federal arrest warrants stemming from a federal grand jury indictment of a methamphetamine trafficking organization operating in the Colorado River Indian Tribes Indian Reservation. Eleven subjects have been taken into custody and additional arrests are anticipated.
DEA Agents, along with law enforcement representatives comprising the La Paz County Narcotics Task Force, conducted the series of enforcement operations on Tuesday, following an investigation into methamphetamine trafficking activities, which led investigators to identify several female tribal members as both sources of supply and retail dealers. DEA Agents and LPCNTF Detectives were able to collect substantial evidence to secure federal charges against 17 traffickers.
