More than 150 law enforcement officers swarmed on six houses in Stanislaus County this morning as part of an ongoing drug trafficking case.
The Central Valley Gang Impact Task Force served six search warrants to three houses in Modesto, two in Ceres and one in Turlock, according to Steve Dupre, spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Sacramento office.
At least one arrest has been made, although final tallies won’t be made until officers have completed their searches. The searches are expected to continue throughout the afternoon.
Dupre said the case involved methamphetamine. He declined to describe the case further.

Officers with various city and county agencies, along with the FBI and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, executed the warrants simultaneously about 11:30 a.m.
Houses searched in Modesto were on Woodworth Avenue, Larsen Avenue and Dallas Street. Houses on Hackett and Roeding roads also were searched, along with a house on North Tully Road in Turlock.
A similar operation in the area tied to the same case was conducted about a month ago, he said.
Also taking part were officers from the Modesto, Turlock and Ceres police departments, the Stanislaus County sheriff’s, probation and district attorney’s office and the state department of corrections.
