HOUSTON - A deadly Houston-area drug-trafficking ring has been taken down in a raid by a team of law enforcement agencies.
Six suspects were arrested on Wednesday, and firearms, vehicles and illegal drugs – some laced with fentanyl – were seized, thanks to a collaborative effort between Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office, the DEA, Texas DPS and the Houston Police Dept.
Deputies confiscated 1 kilo of fentanyl-laced heroin, ½ kilo of cocaine, and 3 kilos of crystal meth as well as other illegal narcotics.
Several stolen vehicles, a large amount of cash, and multiple handguns, assault-style weapons, 50-round magazine drums, large-caliber ammunition, and an unserialized and untraceable firearm were also seized in Wednesday's raid.
Investigators are looking into whether the six suspects may be wanted in other drug-related crimes in the Houston area.
No word on the identity of the suspects or their charges at this time.
