Meth operation disrupted by PCSD, DEA

Posted: Updated:

A drug raid in a central Tucson neighborhood is sending a message to drug dealers.

Pima County Sheriff's Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration is cracking down to make the neighborhoods safer.

“It was such a beautiful thing to see the sheriff's dept. the SWAT team, and the bomb squad," said Richard McGill.

In an early morning raid, PCSD and DEA targeted a house in the 1300 block of West Mohawk Drive.

"You run out in the front yard and start clapping," McGill said. "Oh baby, get 'er done.”

Detectives arrested a man, a woman and turned over two children to the Department of Child Services.

The also seized nearly $3,000 in cash, and recovered a stolen weapon.

Some of the people have lived in the neighborhood over 20 years and remember how it used to be before the crime moved in.

So after Wednesday, they feel a sense of relief.

“It's very reassuring. I will sleep better at night," Cheryl McGill said. "Hoping there will be some positive results."

The McGill’s are retired and spend most of their time at home, gardening and taking pride in their home.

It was challenging for them when the neighbors who were busted moved in.

“There has been no positive interaction at all."

PCSD wanted to send a message to any drug dealers who are ruining the quality of life for hard working people. They said they will find you.

Richard McGill also has message. 

“I hope that it does promote a message to the rest of the drug cartel or whoever they may be adios. (goodbye)"

If you see any suspicious activity in your neighborhood, call 88-CRIME.
