    DEA stops largest drug trafficking operation in Arizona

    DEA stops largest drug trafficking operation in Arizona

    PHOENIX - After an eight-month undercover drug trafficking operation, Drug Enforcement Administration agents shut down one of the largest trafficking organizations in Arizona.

    The investigation was dubbed Operation Triple Threat.

    Eighteen people were arrested after agents searched five homes in the Phoenix area. We’re told since April, the group has smuggled more than $33 million worth of cocaine across the U.S. border.

    The organization has been in operation for at least two years.

    Authorities told ABC15, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, drivers would drop off the drugs at the homes after coming through the Nogales Port of Entry. The drugs were brought to what law enforcement calls “stash houses.
