In the past 24 hours, federal, state and local law enforcement agencies of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), have concluded search and arrest actions in Cobb County and today, with the United States Attorney’s Office, announce that 15 individuals have been indicted for alleged drug trafficking and firearms- related crimes stemming from the large-scale investigation, code-named Operation Spider Web.

Rodney G. Benson, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Atlanta Field Division said, “DEA and its law enforcement counterparts orchestrated a well-planned and coordinated assault against a high-level poly-drug distribution network. Because of the unified effort between DEA and its law enforcement counterparts, this organization will no longer be able to wreak havoc on our community.”

“The U.S. Attorney’s office targets the largest drug trafficking organizations in the district, so that we can reduce the drug trafficking and violence not only in the state of Georgia but the other parts of the country that these organizations touch,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “Operation Spider Web involves 15 defendants who are alleged to have distributed cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana using tire stores as fronts and tires as drug packaging. The takedown of this case has a direct impact on the community to make Atlanta safer, with less drugs and fewer guns on the streets.”
