APD's Crack Crackdown
Operation C'Ya Later hits the Downtown streets
Op C'Ya Later was undertaken by APD, with assistance from the Travis Co. district attorney's office, at the behest of complaining downtown business owners. According to an APD press release, the department believes the undercover operation will "result in a decrease in criminal activity in this area," and the department vows to "remain vigilant in its effort to combat drug dealing."
Indeed, on Nov. 23, APD announced another major narco bust, resulting in the arrest of 17 Honduran citizens who the department alleges were involved in a complex drug ring. Police seized approximately 4 lbs. of pot, a pound of methamphetamine, 5 oz. of crack, and 8 grams of powdered cocaine. Additionally, APD officers arrested three people in connection with 148 lbs. of pot, just under 2 lbs. of cocaine, 2 grams of meth, plus a 9mm rifle, a .45-caliber pistol, and a sawed-off shotgun found in two apartments on Manor Road.
