More than 18 kilogrammes of cocaine, 2.7 kilogrammes of heroin/fentanyl, 5.9 kilogrammes of crystal methamphetamine, 170 pounds of marijuana, 34 firearms, and approximately $30,000 were recovered as a result of these search warrants. All of them are believed to be connected to the drug operation.

The narcotics task force is made up of sworn police officers from the Denton Police Department, the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Natural Resources Police, the Caroline County States Attorney’s Office, and other places.

Operation Success

The success of the operation was due to the work of the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services, the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network Initiative, and the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Initiative.
