In-Depth: Nick Hermann Discusses Major Drug Trafficking Bust with Brad Byrd

Hundreds of thousands of dollars in crystal meth are taken off Tri-State streets thanks to a two year investigation involving more than 20 local and federal law enforcement agencies.

Dozens of warrants are issued targeting a major drug trafficking operation, and authorities say 74 lbs. of meth is seized in Evansville. Investigators believe most of the drugs were smuggled over the Mexican border.

The investigation started in January 2013 with tips from concerned citizens. Nearly 40 people have been arrested in total with more arrests expected in the coming days.

Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann sits down with Brad Byrd to explain how this alleged drug trafficking operation ended up in Evansville.
