Multiple law enforcement agencies participated in a drug sweep Thursday to arrest 12 individuals in the Central Nebraska region for federal charges of distributing methamphetamine and one defendant was also arrested on a state charge of distribution of cocaine. Four federal search warrants and one state search warrant were executed in Grand Island and part of the operation that resulted in the recovery of a significant amount of U.S. Currency, over 2 pounds of methamphetamine, and a yet to be determined amount of cocaine. Court appearances for defendants arrested on federal charges will occur in Lincoln.
