A drug trafficking organization in Frederick City and Frederick County, Md., has been dismantled.
27 people were arrested within the last week by members of the Frederick Police and other local law enforcement agencies.
The investigation began in February 2019 after the department received tips and information on potential drug dealers in the area.
“Our detectives are pretty relentless,” said Lt. Kirk Henneberry, Frederick Police Department. “Anytime tip, no matter how small it is, they are always trying to run with it as far as they can go.
Authorities used 17 search and seizure warrants to residences located in Frederick and Washington Counties, a home in Delaware, and one car.
Two homes located in Frederick City held the most amount of narcotics.
Investigators recovered: over 90 grams of fentanyl, methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, crack cocaine, THC wax, suboxone strips, percocet pills, and over $83,000 in cash.
The 90 grams of fentanyl could lead to 45,000 potential lethal doses.
Henneberry said out of the 27 people arrested at least three of them were main dealers for the organization.
“When we start putting the pieces together, some people talk…let us know what is going on. We see cell phones in a lot of overdoses and get information that way,” said Henneberry.
Authorities said the investigation is ongoing and in the upcoming weeks, additional individuals and charges may be brought forward.
