Yesterday morning, a narcotics investigation by the Indiana State Police, the Logansport Police Department, the Cass County Sheriff’s Department, the Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Cass County Prosecutor’s Office, the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana led to 29 people being arrested on felony drug charges.
