Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force bust large meth distribution network, several arrested

The Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force began investigating a Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) operating in North Georgia and Southeast Tennessee eight months ago. Agents were able to identify key leaders of a large methamphetamine distribution network along distributors and stash houses. With the assistance of multiple agencies, LMJCDTF was able to infiltrate the DTO and determine the pipeline of illegal narcotics being distributed in the judicial circuit. On Friday, July 24, 2020, Agents executed eight search warrants at various locations. As a result of the search warrants, the follow persons were arrested and face pending charges. The case is still ongoing and more arrests are expected in the near future.
