The federal Drug Enforcement Agency and local police departments seized drugs, guns and money from a Daybreak home and took into custody four people on Friday.
DEA agents seized an “undetermined” amount of money, drugs and guns from the home on South Indigo Sky Way in South Jordan, according to DEA Special Agent in Charge Brian Besser.
“We were also in West Jordan and some locations out of state,” Besser said.
Law enforcers took into custody four people on “serious” federal charges, Besser said, and are “going after additional targets right now who are involved with the organization. We don’t have everyone in custody that we’re looking at.”
The four people were accused of being involved with manufacturing bulk amounts of counterfeit oxycodone and Xanax. The group is also accused of cultivating cannabis, according to Besser.
“Any time someone is manufacturing something as dangerous and as volatile as this, we give it our full attention, because people will die from this,” Besser said.
The yearlong investigation has expanded elsewhere in Utah and into two other states. He declined to say which states because the investigation is ongoing.
The DEA worked with Salt Lake City Metro Narcotics Task Force on the investigation. South Jordan police and West Jordan police were involved in Friday morning’s arrest and seizures, Besser said, adding that Homeland Security, the IRS and the U.S. Marshals Service cooperated in the investigation.
