BOULDER, Colo. - More than 200 law enforcement officers executed search warrants at 11 homes Tuesday as part of an investigation into a cocaine distribution organization, according to the Boulder County Drug Task Force and the Denver Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Officers went to homes in Boulder, Louisville, Longmont, Weld County, Adams County and Denver looking for 20 suspects. At least 14 of those people were arrested.
10 law enforcement agencies were involved -- The Boulder County Drug Task Force, DEA, IRS, Boulder Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Louisville Police Department, Longmont Police Department, Adams County Sheriff’s Office, North Metro Task Force, and the Weld County Sheriff’s Office
Officials said during the seventeen-month investigation, they seized a significant amount of cocaine and that the investigation will put a significant dent in the flow of cocaine into our local communities.
“This investigation has cut off a pipeline from Mexico to Boulder that brought cocaine and weapons to our streets," said DEA Special Agent Barbra Roach.
