    Investigators said 11 people have been arrested in connection with a methamphetamine distribution ring in Parker County.

    Investigators said 11 people have been arrested in connection with a methamphetamine distribution ring in Parker County.

    The Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit said investigators in a five-month long undercover investigation arrested 11 people in a meth ring that spanned Weatherford, Fort Worth, Millsap, Aledo, and Mineral Wells. Five other individuals are also under investigation in the same operation, police said.

    Investigators said an anonymous tip of meth possession and use lead to an investigation into large quantities of drugs being bought and sold in Western Lake Estates in Weatherford. From there, the drugs were spread through Tarrant, Parker, and Palo Pinto counties.

    "There was a continuous stream of drugs and money being used and distributed across Palo Pinto and Tarrant Counties with the majority of the suspects switching residences within Parker County in apparent attempts to evade investigators," said SCU Commander, Lt. Mike Camp.  "They used the profits from their methamphetamine distribution operation and reinvested it into their circle of further narcotics supplies and transactions."

    Investigators said the suspects have been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity for the manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance, as well as other offenses that may be unrelated to the meth bust.
