Investigators are calling it the biggest drug bust in our area in a decade.

It's called Operation Red Dog, a two year investigation by the DEA and law enforcement agencies in Kansas.

The DEA's office is in the process of arresting 43 people who were indicted by a federal grand jury.

Operation Red Dog coordinated the efforts of federal, state and local law enforcement in the investigation of a large methamptheamine and cocaine distribution ring that was operating in Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Illinois, Colorado and Nebraska.

The DEA was assisted by the FBI, INS, Wichita Police Department, Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office, ATF, Kansas Highway Patrol and the KBI.

The indictments allege that members of the drug ring bought cocaine and meth in Mexico for resale in Wichita, Oklahoma City, Chicago, Denver, and South Sioux City, Nebraska.

The investigation started as a meth investigation in Oklahoma.
