Some of the most notorious drug dealers are off the streets of Ouachita Parish tonight, thanks to a sting operation that started at the crack of dawn.
When a gang of federal agents and local police are pounding on your door at 5 a.m., you know you’re in for a rude awakening.
Officers served ten federal warrants this morning, in a sting operation known as “Operation Big Bully,” which is named after Jimmy “Big Bully” Mitchell, who’s considered to be the leader.
Officials say the group was trafficking about $420,000 of crack cocaine onto the streets of Monroe on a weekly basis.
Agents with the U.S. Marshal’s Office, Metro Narcotics, and the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested at least ten suspects, believed to be the high-level drug dealers who would distribute drugs to mid-level and lower-level drug dealers.
