Agents and officers from several agencies of the DPS Criminal Investigation Division seized more than $1 million in drugs, weapons and cars over the weekend.

Five men from Dallas, who police said were part of a drug trafficking organization operating in several states, were arrested.

The men are scheduled for a detention hearing this Thursday, Dec. 9 at the federal courthouse in Plano.

The Eastern District U.S. Attorney’s office will prosecute the case.

Since the investigation is ongoing, additional details about the seizure and arrests have been limited by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
