Jill Atwood Reporting...A major drug bust in Millard County will take a lot of methamphetamine off the streets there. The agencies involved in the arrest had been watching the two men for quite a while. One suspect is an Iraqi refugee.
The two suspects were allegedly big time dealers in the Delta area. And according to the Central Utah Narcotics Task Force two others were arrested as well. So now four are off the streets tonight.
32-year-old Abdual Raheen Al-Hisnawi of Salt Lake City and 26-year-old Brett James Sperry of Delta are both in the Millard County Jail.
Task force agents believe Al-Hisnawi was the major supplier.
They say he was also dealing in Wyoming. They also tell Eyewitness News their agents had made two undercover buys with him prior to the arrest last week. They picked the pair up traveling along state route 125 last Thursday.
Tonight the two are facing multiple felony charges including possession of methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Along with the task force, the DEA, FBI and Homeland Security are also involved, because of the fact that al-Hisnawi is from Iraq.
Millard County Sheriff's office wanted as much information as possible about him. Of course they are looking thoroughly into his background. So far no indication that his dealings in the past are any thing other than drug involvement.
