SAN ANTONIO - The Seguin Police Department and the US Drug Enforcement Administration teamed up in a joint operation that resulted in 19 arrests Thursday, officials said.
Seguin police said that the people arrested range in age from 20 years old to 50 years old.
"It was a good day for the Seguin Police Department," Police Chief Kevin Kels said of the arrests. "Everything went according to plan."
The arrests were made throughout the city in partnership with the DEA.
"It's not unusual to have these (drug) issues in small communities," said Wendell Campbell of the DEA.
According to the release, Seguin police and the DEA initiated an in-depth investigation called “Operation Raging Bull” last September.
The operation focused on individuals involved in the manufacture and delivery of heroin and crystal methamphetamine.
Authorities executed sixteen arrest warrants during the roundup. Three individuals were arrested for other unrelated criminal charges.
