Huge Drug Bust in Colorado

In the biggest drug bust in Colorado history, 80 people have been arrested with another 17 still on the run. In the bust, federal authorities confiscated over $415,000 in cash, over 26,000 grams of cocaine, a pound of methamphetamine, 1,000 grams of crack, 11 weapons including a SKS and AR-15 assault rifles.

Forty different law enforcement agencies with over 500 state and federal officers, made the arrests in various cities along the Front Range of Colorado. Around a third of the accused are to be prosecuted in the 17th Judicial District of Colorado and if convicted, will face anywhere from 10 years to life in jail.

With a drug bust of this size, those accused will be looking at charges that will have an impact on the rest of their lives. As North Carolina Criminal Defense Attorneys, we see cases similar to these and know it will be in their best interest that they seek the counsel of a knowledgeable Denver Federal Drug Crimes Attorney.
