Mesquite, TX – May 11, 2020 – The Mesquite Police Department (MPD) recently uncovered a substantial narcotics distribution operation in Mesquite. Investigators were able to observe the suspect and made numerous arrests of people purchasing narcotics from the operation. Last week, investigators conducted a search of the property and uncovered a significant amount of marijuana, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) wax, illegal steroids and several firearms. The person suspected of running this operation was arrested on numerous charges and is currently in jail.
This case was a significant investigation involving numerous MPD officers and detectives. The issue of “public safety” continues to be a top priority of the City Council, and MPD continues to support that priority by excelling in catching the criminals in Mesquite.

Both investigations are tangible examples of the dedication of the MPD’s officers’ commitment to stopping illegal activity in the Mesquite community.
