Meth bust: Nine North County citizens arrested 

Approximately two pounds of methamphetamine were seized during the investigation with an estimated street value of more than $12,000.

Operation is believed to have ties to Mexican drug cartels

–Officers from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office have arrested nine people, all residents of Paso Robles, Atascadero and San Miguel, for their involvement in a major methamphetamine ring. It’s believed this operation has ties to Mexican drug cartels, according to the sheriff’s office.

After a three-month long investigation that began in June 2016, members of the sheriff’s narcotics unit shut down a major methamphetamine distribution organization that they say was operating in northern San Luis Obispo County.

Investigators served search warrants at nine locations in both San Luis Obispo and San Bernardino Counties. The sheriff’s office was assisted in the investigation by members of the sheriff’s K9 unit, Drug Enforcement Administration, San Luis Obispo Police Department, County Probation Department, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, CHP and Homeland Security Investigations.

Two handguns and ammunition were also confiscated.
