Two Year Investigation Ends In Indictment Of 35 People On Drug Trafficking Charges

Beginning in 2019, authorities in Texas began investigating two separate drug trafficking organizations. Over the course of two years, agents 
from Texas, the DEA and ICE gathered evidence and infiltrated the 
organizations. The 35 individuals indicted were arrested for having 90 
kilograms of methamphetamines, large amounts of cash, and a wide 
assortment of firearms.

The defendants, in this case, all face between five and forty years in 
prison for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 
quantities greater than a kilogram of methamphetamines. In addition to 
the drug charges, the defendants also face up to 20 years each in prison 
for money laundering,

The arrests of these 35 defendants show how well coordinated our law enforcement agencies are. They worked very well in tandem together and 
called the investigations into each organization Operation Glass Joe and 
Operation Island Time.
