The Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team and the Drug Enforcement Administration made one of the biggest drug busts in Western Slope history.

Thirty people were arrested and eight others remain at large on warrants.

65 pounds of marijuana, nine pounds of cocaine, and large amounts of other drugs were seized from the gang, known as "The Boys."

The round-up stemmed from four different search warrants in Rifle, Carbondale, Vail, and Glenwood Springs.

Investigators say some of the dealers are as young as 14-years-old. They also say most of those arrested have lengthy criminal histories including attempted murder and assault.
