SWET assists in drug raid

Southwest Enforcement Team assisted in a drug raid Tuesday in Kalamazoo.

The investigation, which began about six months ago, led to the arrest of two men – one from Kalamazoo and the other from California.

Lt. Jim Lass said investigators learned a drug-trafficking organization had delivered more than 400 pounds of methamphetamine from Mexico and police were aware a shipment of the drug “ice” was headed to Kalamazoo. Authorities intercepted the shipment of 27 pounds, hidden in a vehicle.

Also on Tuesday, state and federal officers in California executed search warrants, leading to the seizure of an additional 30 pounds of ice.

Both men were scheduled for arraignment Wednesday in federal court in Grand Rapids.

SWET includes officers from the St. Joseph County Sheriff ’s Department, Sturgis Police Department and Michigan State Police.
