Tri-Net Task Force Arrests Carson City Drug
Tri-Net officers locate hidden drugs with the help of Carson City Sheriff's K-9, "Scout"
Members of the Tri-Net Task Force, with the assistance of the Reno Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) office, and the Carson City Sheriff K-9, "Scout," arrested the following individuals on February 22 on various drug trafficking charges:
The arrests were a result of a two-month long investigation by Tri-Net, with officers purchasing drugs out of one of the mobile homes. At both locations the drugs were hidden inside the homes, but were located by "Scout," a drug detection dog from the Carson City Sheriff's Office. It is believed that both suspects are brothers who have been selling drugs in the Carson City area for some time.
Tri-Net Narcotics Task Force is comprised of members of the Douglas County Sheriffs Department, Lyon County Sheriffs Department, Carson City Sheriffs Department, Storey County Sheriffs Department and the Nevada Division of Investigation.
Citizens may report drug information and/or activity to the Tri-Net Task Force by calling 687-1658. You do not have to give your name.
