Drug Operation Stopped After Years of Investigation

After an investigation that stretched out over several years, 11 people were arrested in Lubbock on Thursday. Nine others were arrested in Washington state. They are all charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Assistant U.S. Attorney in Midland, Jeff Parras, says that the meth was made in Washington State and then shipped to Lubbock to be sold. Parras also says that the drug ring was a family operation.

"Three brothers and their mother as well as a couple of the daughters of three of the defendants were involved in this investigation and were ultimately charged in this complaint," said Parras.

Each of the defendants face 10 years to life in prison and a maximum fine of $4 million.
