Rio Linda Man Charged for Drug Trafficking in Multi-State Operation

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced today that an indictment was unsealed charging 26 defendants with drug trafficking, possessing a firearm during drug trafficking, money laundering, and other charges.

An indictment was unsealed charging 26 defendants, one of whom is from the Rio Linda area, with drug trafficking, possessing a firearm during drug trafficking, money laundering and other charges, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

These charges were brought as the result of Operation Lights Out, an FBI-led investigation in partnership with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

“The unsealing of this indictment reflects months of incredible efforts by law enforcement. We are able to bring these charges because of the effective cooperation and collaborative effort of our local, state and federal partners on this case,” said Jessica D. Aber, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “I am grateful to all our attorneys, agents and officers who work diligently every day to take massive amounts of illegal guns and drugs off of our streets.”

“The arrests made in this operation is the culmination of years of investigative work between the FBI and our law enforcement partners,” said Brian Dugan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Norfolk Field Office. “Today, I want to sincerely thank those partners for their teamwork and patience as we gathered the evidence needed for this investigation to come to a logical conclusion, as our law enforcement partners have been dealing with some of these offenders for over a decade. I hope that this operation gives them a return on investment for all the officers and resources they dedicated to assisting the investigation. This operation is a testament to the strong partnership the FBI has with local and state police, as well as sheriff’s offices, and how that partnership better protects our communities.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric M. Hurt is prosecuting the case.
