Authorities in Florida executed the arrests of 32 individuals for their complicit roles in a drug trafficking ring during a series of raids called “operation Fall Frenzy.”

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said the two-month undercover probe led to the discovery that those arrested smuggled substantial amounts of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana, NBC2 reported.

“I hope this operation serves as a reminder that we will not tolerate this activity in our community. You can all sleep better these thugs are behind bars where they belong,” Sheriff Carmine Marceno stated.

Authorities still have outstanding arrest warrants for 12 additional suspects.

Seven billboards posted Lee County will display those wanted faces at major intersections, including Colonial Boulevard and Metro Parkway.

Anyone with information about the drug dealers is asked to contact Crime Stoppers.
