Narcotics Agents Net 49 Drug Arrests in One Day

Updated:
BOSSIER CITY (KYTX)- Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says narcotics agents with the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force teamed with other area law enforcement agencies Wednesday and arrested 49 persons wanted on mostly felony drug charges following an 11-month investigation.

The Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force is comprised of agents with the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office and Bossier City Police Department. Joining them yesterday to lock up drug dealers and users were agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force, U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Task Force, which included agents from Shreveport Police Department, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police and Haughton Police Department, in addition to agents from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and Bossier City Police Department.

In August 2013, the task force rounded up 32 persons during Operation Summer Sweep to get drug dealers off of the streets of Bossier and northwest Louisiana.

“Yesterday’s roundup of drug dealers and users was “Round 2” of our pledge to clean up the streets of Bossier Parish and to show our commitment to ridding our community of illegal drugs,” said Sheriff Whittington. “This was a joint effort with our partnering law enforcement agencies to show that we have zero tolerance for those who want to infest our neighborhoods and children with drugs.”

Methamphetamine charges accounted for the most arrests at around 60%, with 20% of the arrests for cocaine, 10% for marijuana and 10% for prescription pills such as Lortab and Percocet.
