Starting Monday, federal and local law enforcement apprehended 14 of the 22 people listed on their arrest warrants. The 14 were taken to jail while the remainder were still being sought.
That Monday, the police confiscated $4 million in alleged drug money from members of Madrigal’s organization. They alleged that Madrigal had continued to run the operation while being locked up.
Though these arrests are a big accomplishment for law enforcement and hopefully have made a dent in the drug dealer’s ability to harm the public, there is still much to be done. Drug abuse is an increasingly damaging problem for Americans of all ages. One thing is clear: something needs to be done.
