Blotter: Police department tactical team makes three arrests

Comments () A Text Size

The Denton Police Department’s Special Operations and Tactical Team made three arrests Tuesday stemming from an investigation into one prime suspect.

According to officials, all three — two men and one woman — had Dallas addresses and were charged with “some form of controlled substance charge.” Two, according to a sergeant working the case, were arrested inside their hotel room and the other was tackled in the hotel parking lot.

At least one of the people was primarily selling crack cocaine, police said. How much was confiscated and the street value is not being released at this time because of the sensitivity of the case, police said.
