On April 28-29, 2020, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST) participated in a two-day North Florida High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Domestic Highway Enforcement (DHE) Operation. Over the course of the two-day operation, UDEST was assisted by members from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and Ocala Police Department.

OPD officials said, “The DHE Strategy promotes collaborative, intelligence-led, unbiased policing in coordinated and mutually supportive multi-jurisdictional law enforcement efforts on the Nation’s highways. Officials say the DHE strategy both improves the investigative efforts of the HIDTA in attacking drug trafficking organizations and has a significant impact on traffic safety, homeland security, and other crimes.”

The DHE goals include:

(1) enhancing investigations leading to the disruption and dismantlement of the drug trafficking and money laundering organizations that use the Nation’s highways as a means of transporting illegal drugs, currency, and other contraband and illicit commodities from one location to another;

(2) cultivating and sharing intelligence information pertaining to individuals and organizations who use the Nation’s highways as a means of transporting illegal drugs, currency, and other illicit commodities or create other threats and hazards on those highways; and

(3) promoting shared operational planning, intelligence, and coordination among Federal, state, and local law enforcement to improve their ability to effectively address all crimes, threats, and hazards relating to our Nation’s highways.

During the two-day event, DHE participants conducted more than 55 traffic stops; recovered a stolen vehicle; seized illicit drugs, to include fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, suboxone, and marijuana; and arrested the multiple persons, to include:
