Early this morning, over 100 Narcotics Agents began executing arrest and search warrants in Assumption, Lafourche and Terrebonne Parish in conjunction with an 8 month undercover operation named "Operation Shop Closed”. This investigation began as a follow up on concerned citizens' complaints concerning drug trafficking in Kingston Subdivision located in Labadieville (Assumption Parish). As intelligence was developed it was discovered that the suspects were part of a large operation and were deemed "High Level” drug dealers. Assumption Narcotics Agents partnered with Louisiana State Police and U.S. Department of Justice-Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and expanded the scope of this investigation which has resulted in the closing down of a major cocaine distribution ring in the Tri-Parish Area.

Several assets including a house in Labadieville, 2 cars and cash will be seized as part of this operation. Cocaine and cash were recovered during the search warrants this morning. The amounts and weights of cash and drugs are currently being processed by Narcotics Agents and have not been finalized as of the time of this release.
