, Utah Co. Major Crimes Task Force
PROVO — Members of a group that police believe had been making more than $300,000 a month in heroin and cocaine trafficking in Utah were rounded up by numerous county, state and federal officers Tuesday.
Eight search warrants were served simultaneously early Tuesday by more than 75 law enforcers from the Utah County Major Crimes Task Force, Unified Police Department, Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office, FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Fourteen people had been arrested as of Tuesday afternoon and booked into the Utah County Jail, mainly for investigation of drug possession with intent to distribute.
Heroin, cocaine, cash and guns were seized during the early morning searches, according to a statement from the Utah County Major Crimes Task Force. Investigators say the arrests have "resulted in the disruption of a multi-state drug trafficking organization operating along the Wasatch Front."
