SEATTLE – Three significant drug trafficking groups responsible for trafficking more than 1,000 pounds of methamphetamine and hundreds of thousands of fentanyl pills are facing federal charges tonight.
Federal investigators and local law enforcement partners seized two RVs packed with meth and fake pills after they were driven from California to Washington up the I-5 corridor.
Two indictments, charging a total of eleven defendants, were unsealed late yesterday following law enforcement activity in two states. Six additional defendants were indicted and arrested in September. Despite the arrests tied to a wire-tap investigation, the traffickers named in the most recent indictments continued their trafficking activities.
