The asset sharing proceeds derived from two Dallas Division investigations. On May 14, 2003, a vehicle containing 20 kilograms of cocaine was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint outside of Laredo, Texas. A controlled delivery was conducted to an apartment in Plano, Texas, a Dallas suburb. During the course of the investigation, DEA Special Agents and Task Force Officers learned that another apartment in the same complex was related to the apartment where the cocaine was delivered. The occupants of this apartment gave DEA permission to search the apartment. DEA task force personnel seized $442,751, along with 2 SKS assault rifles, money counters and packaging supplies.

The second investigation was conducted by a DEA Dallas Task Force and resulted in an indictment of 16 defendants for Conspiracy to Distribute cocaine. During the execution of 12 Search Warrants the following was seized: 6 properties valued in excess of $500K; approximately $830K in US currency; 26 vehicles valued in excess of $300K; assorted jewelry valued in excess of $16K; and, 35 weapons. One of the search warrants occurred in Elmo, Kaufman County, Texas, where $230,249 was seized along with 15 kilograms of cocaine, four vehicles and 14 farm equipment items.

The Dallas Police Department has a long history of successful association with the Dallas Division. Dallas PD provides task force officers to various DEA enforcement programs and the North Texas High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area initiative. SAC Olenkiewicz lauded the past investigative contributions of the police department and Chief Hampton reaffirmed the department’s commitment to continue with their successful relationship with DEA.
