ST. GEORGE, UTAH – A recently unsealed 24 count indictment issued by a grand jury in the District of Utah charges 17 individuals for their alleged roles in a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine, and marijuana in Washington County. The charges follow joint Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) operations conducted by the Washington County Drug Task Force, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation Division (IRS), and the United States Marshals Service.
Now here is an interesting situation. Mexican Nationals running Fentanyl and other drugs to St George right at the Border of Arizona and Nevada (far southern UTAH) and it is a short hop to Las Vegas. Juan has reported the rise in deaths all over Las Vegas. Yuma Arizona is getting incredible increases in Trafficking from the Ports at the Gulf of California and has access across the RIO GRANDE river that jogs North between Mexico and Arizona. This is a bad turn and the FBI is like the KEYSTONE COPS. USPS is now involved as well.
