A county representative says cooperative narcotics enforcement efforts in Grimes County and Madison County are proving effective. The Task Force, in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, has run multiple search warrants on locations that are involved in narcotics trafficking resulting in the seizure of significant amounts of narcotics and locating large stores of stolen property. These efforts will continue in an effort to stem the flow of illegal narcotics and the accompanying thefts, burglaries and other violent crimes that accompany the illegal narcotics trade.

The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office, the Navasota Police Department and the Grimes County District Attorney’s Office along with members of the Narcotics Task Force assisted by agents of many local law enforcement agencies have been putting in many hours conducting undercover operations, surveillance, and targeted drug purchases from individuals who sell illegal narcotics and steal from law abiding citizens. These officers have started at the bottom of the drug world with street dealers and worked their way to the top traffickers/suppliers in Grimes and Madison Counties. In addition to seizing illegal narcotics and recovering stolen property, law enforcement in conjunction with the District Attorney’s Office are filing law suits to seize the homes and properties of these drug traffickers in an effort to prevent further criminal activity and to use the resources of these drug dealers to fund law enforcement activity.
