Attorney General Suthers Says 33 Indicted In Drug Ring
DENVER (AP/CBS4) – Colorado authorities say they have broken up a drug ring in northern Colorado that resulted in the indictment of 33 people.
Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said Wednesday the drugs seized included methamphetamines, cocaine, marijuana and other controlled substances.
According to the 94-count indictment, the suspects dealt drugs in the Fort Collins, Greeley and Loveland areas.
“More importantly, as the investigators will confirm, this operation has for the time being wiped out a significant supply of the cocaine and methamphetamine in Northern Colorado,” Suthers said.
Authorities said they recovered five pounds of cocaine, one pound of methamphetamine, 26 pounds of marijuana, 15 firearms and more than $90,000 in cash during the investigation.
