San Jose, Calif. - The San Jose Police Department's Special Investigations Unit conducted a large-scale operation last week, targeting a highly-organized criminal organization. The group was manufacturing and selling narcotics throughout San Jose and the Bay Area, as well as transporting narcotics across the country to the Southern and Eastern parts of the United States.

On November 28, 2018, the San Jose Police Department's Special Investigations Unit, in conjunction with the MERGE Unit; Covert Response Unit; Violent Crimes Enforcement Team; Metro Unit; ICAC Unit; K-9 Unit; Field Operations; Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety; Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office; U.S. Postal Inspectors and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration conducted service of six search warrants and four arrest warrants within San Jose and Sunnyvale. Over 800 pounds of marijuana, a large amount of illegal anabolic steroids, five ounces of concentrated hash oil, powder cocaine, Xanax bars, Ecstasy pills, three handguns and an expended rocket launcher (AT4) were recovered in the raids. Numerous bank accounts were also frozen and $600,000.00 was seized. Warehouses in four other states were identified and local agencies from those respective departments acted in collaboration with the San Jose Police Department.

This operation was the culmination of a two-year long investigation. Four adult male suspects were arrested in this case and were booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for various charges, including manufacturing and transporting of narcotics and possession of illegal weapons.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the San Jose Police Department's Special Investigations Unit at 408-277-4041.
