Manatee County has been cracking down on drugs in 2017, arresting 75 different suspects through undercover drug purchases.
Detectives from the Special Investigations Division "focused on people selling, distributing and trafficking in narcotics, as opposed to those suffering from the disease of addiction."
During these investigations, detectives seized approximately 7,939 grams of cocaine, 697 grams of heroin/fentanyl/carfentanil, 38,465 grams of marijuana, 1 gram of methadone, 3,258 grams of methamphetamine, 73 grams of rock cocaine, 58 grams of hydrocodone, 139 grams of Xanax, 2 grams of Ecstasy, 5 grams of Oxycodone, and 131 grams of other prescription pills.
The department says the seizures have prevented well over 7,000 "hits" or uses of opioids from being distributed.
200 charges were brought forward for 75 different suspects.
Additional investigations are ongoing.
