The arrests and searches were conducted in a coordinated effort by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, Marshall County Sheriff's Department and the Marshalltown Police Department.

The following individuals were arrested and charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine: Jose Sanchez Adame, Jose Luis Sanchez Adame, Raymundo Sotel Calderon, Fidel Sanchez, Antonio Cabrera Mendiola, Kyla Nicole Forbes, Shannon Lee Fogle and Fernando Camacho.
