Drug stings lead to slew of arrests

The Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team (TRIDENT) has made numerous arrests following an almost two-year investigation, according to a pair of press releases from the interagency task force on Sept. 11. 
One describes a series of controlled purchases of cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine between October 2016 and February 2017 in Glenwood in Carbondale which result in eight arrests: six on state felonies and two (Rigoberto Felix, 31, and Sergio Santiago Gonzales Lomeli, 22) on federal charges. 
The other covers a broader investigation from October 2015 through August 2017, which resulted in 15 arrests (not including the aforementioned eight) and the seizure of 330.6 grams of cocaine, 6200 grams of meth, seven grams of heroin, three long guns and $21,196 in cash. 

The Sun plans to follow this story through the court system.
