FERRIS – Officers from the Ferris and Red Oak police departments, as well as the narcotics division in the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, busted a street-level narcotics ring last week resulting in six arrests, according to the results of a lengthy investigation.
Undercover agents, a Ferris Police Department press release stated, made narcotics purchases from several suspects in northeastern Ellis County; during the warrant round-up, six from Ferris were arrested on charges of narcotics trafficking.
"At the time the warrants were served, some of the arrested men were booked on additional charges including probation violations and drug possession charges," the press release stated. "Several additional warrants of arrest related to this investigation have been issued and will be affected in the coming days."
The names and ages of the suspects have not been released, according to Chief Michael Braly, who last week announced his resignation.
"Investigators anticipate that additional charges and arrests may arise as a result of this ongoing investigation," the release stated.
