The arrests come as a result of a two-year long investigation that started in October of 2010. At a press conference, interim Wichita Falls Police Chief Manuel Borrego told reporters, "The federal indictment accuses these individuals of at least one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Others are being charged with substantial drug sales and also firearms offenses." The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, Wichita Falls Police Department, Arlington Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Marshals all took part in the investigation.
