As a result of their efforts, the officers were able to recover approximately 1,302 grams of heroin, 894 grams of methamphetamine, 396 grams of fentanyl, 230 grams of crack cocaine, 190 grams of powdered cocaine as well as $11,433 in U.S. Currency along with other drug distribution accessories and evidence.
