The Borger Police Department is continuing its aggressive campaign against illegal narcotics and criminal activity associated with them.
This campaign resulted in a large scale drug arrest after another extensive investigation into illegal narcotics in the City of Borger and surrounding communities. Due to cooperative investigations and intelligence sharing between the Borger Police Department and Fritch Police Department, the latest investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately $17,000 worth of methamphetamines that was intended for distribution throughout the communities, Lt. Anthony Griffin of the BPD said.
The conclusion to the latest investigation came on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012. On this date, multiple “target” locations were converged upon by BPD.
In the 400 block of Madison Street, a traffic stop was conducted, resulting in three arrests.

The vehicle, which was occupied by the individuals at the time of the arrest, was seized. Forfeiture proceedings for the vehicle will be conducted and filed.
During the traffic stop and arrest of Lanier, Morris, and Zuniga, other BPD officers executed an evidentiary search warrant at 318 North Deahl Street, Apartment #5. This search warrant resulted in the arrest of Raul Rodriguez. He was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance under one gram.

Later in the evening, Borger police officers searched another residence located at 139 Froma Street. During this search, a large quantity of methamphetamines was located, along with other illegal narcotics. This search resulted in three more arrests.
