LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) - A investigation, over six months in the making, lands 29 suspected drug dealers and users in jail on state and federal drug charges.
The raid crossed state lines into Illinois, but started in Cass County. Along with state and federal agencies Logansport police and the Cass County Sheriff's office were also involved.
In all, arrests were made in six Indiana counties, including Cass, Carroll, Clinton, Tippecanoe, Miami, and Howard. Plus, two counties in Illinois.
Police raided homes in the counties early Monday morning, and completed all the arrests by mid afternoon. Thirteen pounds of marijuana, 37 grams of cocaine, LSD, illegal mushrooms, 10 vehicles, two jet skis, and $34,000 in cash were all taken by police as evidence.
"This was a great day for law enforcement, both at the federal level all the way down to the local level," Cass County Prosecutor, Kevin Enyert, said.
Police in Cass County say this raid was important to help the ongoing fight against drugs in the community.
"People who use drugs usually go out and commit crimes to furnish their habit," Cass County Sheriff, Randy Pryor, said. "It's a good thing for us to incarcerate individuals dealing in drugs, selling drugs, and using drugs."
Nine of the people arrested will face federal charges.
