A nearly year­long in­ves­ti­ga­tion led to the seizure of more than 50 pounds of co­caine, 1,100 grams of heroin and mul­ti­ple ar­rests.

A nearly year­long in­ves­ti­ga­tion into drug traf­fick­ing in the area led to the seizure of more than 50 pounds of co­caine and 1,100 grams of heroin and mul­ti­ple ar­rests, Mont­gomery County Sher­iff Phil Plum­mer said.

An undis­closed amount of cash and guns were also con­fis­cated in two sep­a­rate oper­a­tions over a 24-hour pe­riod this week, Plum­mer said. Some of the drugs orig­i­nated in Cal­i­for­nia and were in­tended for dis­tri­bu­tion in the area, he said.

Both oper­a­tions were car­ried out by the Mi­ami Val­ley Bulk Smug­gling Task Force.

Tues­day’s oper­a­tion re­sulted in the ar­rest of Jamie Har­ris, also known as Snoop, and Charles Moore. Both have been sell­ing large amounts of meth, hero­ine, co­caine and mar­i­juana through­out the Mi­ami Val­ley, the sher­iff said.

The oper­a­tion started about 6:30 Tues­day morn­ing when the Home­land Se­cu­rity’s Spe­cial Re­sponse Team raided a home in the 2900 block of Mo­raine Ave-

con­tin­ued from B1 nue in Day­ton. As of­fi­cers were at­tempt­ing to ap­pre­hend Moore, he threw 2 pounds of meth from his car, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease is­sued af­ter a news con­fer­ence Tues­day.

De­tec­tives then went to two other homes in the 4900 block of Fort­man Av­enue in Jef­fer­son Twp. and the 10 block of Belle Meadow Drive in Trotwood to com­plete the oper­a­tion, the re­lease said.

At those lo­ca­tions of­fi­cials seized 12 pounds of meth, 750 grams of heroin, 350 grams of co­caine, 50 pounds of mar­i­juana, thou­sands of dol­lars in cash and two hand­guns.

The other oper­a­tion was car­ried out Mon­day when the Mi­ami Val­ley Bulk Smug- gling Task Force con­ducted a nar­cotics in­ves­ti­ga­tion in con­junc­tion with the Illi­nois State Po­lice. It re­sulted in the ar­rest of Ar­mando Takata-Napoles, Sixto Flores-Zazueta Jr., Sixto Flores-Zazueta Sr. and Vi­o­let Zazueta.

They were in pos­ses­sion of 20 pounds of co­caine, and 10 ki­los was be­ing taken to Spring­field, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, not­ing that Takata-Napoles was ac­cept­ing the co­caine.
