Area task force sweep results in 181 arrests
FORT SMITH — A multiagency task force arrested 181 people on felony and misdemeanor warrants in western Arkansas last week.
Six people were arrested in Logan County on charges relating to a marijuana distribution operation, said Billy Bryant, assistant special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration in Arkansas.
The raid led to the confiscation of $112,000 cash and the seizure of 160 acres of farm land with homes, barns and shops valued at $104,000, he said.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenny Elser said brothers Larry and Terry Bollinger, brothers David and Felix Herrera and Edward Carter, all of the Booneville and Magazine area, and Jessie Ryles of Greenwood were arrested on federal charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
