Written by Staff Writer

The federal, state and local law enforcement agencies were involved in Operation Snoop Rock.

More than 300 law enforcement agents participated in the operation, which targeted those suspected of selling narcotics, extortion, illegal firearms and other criminal activity on the Texas Gulf Coast.

“These operations are designed to ensure that once violent criminals are removed from the streets of communities across the Gulf Coast, they’re never able to return,” said David B. Rosen, Chief of the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

“I am proud of the results achieved during this operation, with more than 300 arrests made and more than two dozen firearms recovered. These arrests are the culmination of tremendous cooperation between our agents, investigators and agents from state and local agencies, and I thank each and every one of them for their hard work and commitment.”
