The investigation discovered five people as the suspected primary dealers. They were arrested on charges of attempting to traffic in illegal drugs, conspiracy to traffic in illegal drugs, and conspiracy to sell or deliver illegal drugs.

The agents also arrested 11 people on suspicion of purchasing drugs. They face charges of solicitation to deliver controlled substances.
