In total, arrests covered Kerr, Kendall, Bexar, and Guadalupe counties. Nine suspects were arrested in Kerr County, twelve in Kendall County, fourteen in Guadalupe County, and twenty-four in Bexar County.
As a result of this multi-agency operation, 59 felony arrests for Prostitution, Narcotics and Weapons charges, 2 stolen handguns were recovered, approximately 19 grams of heroin, 4.4 grams of methamphetamine were seized, 2 females were arrested for Criminal Mischief, 11 potential victims were recovered in potential human trafficking and at least 3 subjects accepted services that were offered to them as part of this investigation.
“Cooperation on this level is what I promised to institute as Kerr County Sheriff, and the results of this operation show the effect,” said Kerr County Sheriff Larry Leitha. Leitha added, “Both public safety and taxpayers are best served when law enforcement makes and fills requests based on mutual aid and capability.”
