CALIFORNIA-TO-BUCKS COUNTY DRUG TRAFFICKING ORGANIZATION DISMANTLED

Seized Guns

A narcotics investigation, led by the Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force, Quakertown Borough Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations with collaboration from other local, state, and federal agencies, dismantled a bicoastal drug trafficking organization that shipped millions of dollars in deadly drugs from Los Angeles to Bucks County and surrounding areas.

The investigation, which began in February 2023, resulted in the arrests of six individuals, four in Pennsylvania and two in California, and led to the seizure of more than $3.5 million worth of drugs, and more than 40 firearms and 100,000 rounds of ammunition.

Concealing the drugs in parcels, the drug organization used U.S. parcel companies to ship large quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl, and marijuana from Los Angeles to Pennsylvania.

“By dismantling this dangerous national drug trafficking organization, the Bucks County Drug Strike Force and its law enforcement partners, have undoubtedly saved countless lives. More to come,” District Attorney Matt Weintraub said.
