Utah officials bust Honduran drug trafficking ring

SALT LAKE COUNTY (News4Utah)- Five people are facing deportation after officials say they were caught distributing heroin and cocaine.

The Department of Public Safety State's Bureau of Investigation (SBI) Narcotics Agents took the five people into custody earlier this month after learning of their involvement related to a Honduran drug trafficking organization.

SBI Agents recovered over 100 balloons of heroin and nearly 50 balloons of crack cocaine. 

"Four of the five subjects had previously been deported for drug trafficking and three had felony warrants out of Utah for previous drug distribution charges," a press release said.

Officials say the investigation was a result of information they received from Operation Rio Grande.
