On Thursday morning, more than 100 federal, state and local law enforcement officers conducted a major drug and gang sweep at about 20 locations throughout the Spokane area, as well as in Idaho, Nevada, and California. After the raids, 29 people were arrested and implicated in an alleged, significant drug-trafficking case. 

The Spokane Violent Crime and Gang Enforcement Team said the suspects will face many charges in federal court, including Conspiracy to Distribute PCP, Meth, Ecstasy, and Oxycodone. 

Officials say the arrests on Thursday are the culmination of more than a year of investigation.

According to the criminal indictment, Deandre Gaither of Spokane Valley, Stafone Fuentes and Jason L. Jones of Spokane, and Kory A.J. Hall of Las Vegas, engaged in a "continuing criminal enterprise" to distribute illegal drugs. 

In all, 29 people were arrested and 10 more are being sought. You can view who was arrested and who is still on the loose, by clicking the PDF link to the right of this story.
