Five locations in Greeley, Garden City, and Evans were the target of the operation. One of the searches required authorities to divert traffic while investigators searched the home in the 500 block of 35th Avenue in Greeley.

Weld County Drug Task Force Lieutenant, Steve Black, states that charges are pending for approximately a dozen people involved in the international drug trafficking ring. The drugs were being manufactured in Mexico and smuggled through Arizona.
