Published:
SPOKANE — Authorities have arrested 29 people on federal drug charges involving the manufacture and sale of opiates.
Law enforcement agents served search warrants throughout Spokane early Thursday. They were searching for evidence that people with ties to Spokane, California, Idaho and Nevada were selling ecstasy, oxycodone, methamphetamine and PCP.
A task force of FBI agents, Spokane Police and Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies have been investigating the alleged drug ring for more than a year.
Court documents say 39 people were indicted, and 26 of the people arrested had Spokane addresses.
