As a result of the overdose death of a 19 year old victim in early 2014, the Dallas Police Department, in conjunction with the United States Attorney’s Office, initiated an investigation into the source of the narcotics.
The investigation led detectives to investigate two night clubs operating from the same building where drugs were bought, sold and consumed. The culmination of that investigation ended Sunday morning with numerous federal indictments and arrests including those implicated in the death of the overdose victim.

The investigation netted the seizure of various drugs to include NBOMe, Molly (street name), cocaine, ICE and Xanax.
Based on the results of this investigation, the Dallas Police Department has referred the location to the City Attorney’s Office for civil action in an effort to abate the criminal activity.
All questions regarding the federal indictments are to be referred to The U.S. Attorney’s Office.
