ROCK SPRINGS — A six-month long multi-agency investigation into a significant Sweetwater County area drug trafficking and distribution ring resulted three search warrants in Green River and Rock Springs and 25 arrests in Rock Srings, Green River, Fort Bridger and Evanston.

This information provided by Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell said the search warrants and arrests were carried out on Thursday of last week, May 18.

According to court documents, in December of 2016, detectives with the Sheriff’s Narcotics and Arrest Group (SNAAG) and special agents from Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation’s Southwest Enforcement Team (DCI SWET) developed information regarding the illegal transportation, distribution, and use of methamphetamine throughout Southwest Wyoming by a loosely-organized, Green River-based, drug trafficking organization.

The majority of those arrested were from Rock Springs and Green River, three were from Utah, and Treina Lynn Montoya, 35, of Fort Bridger, was charged with alleged conspiracy to deliver meth.
