A multi-agency undercover narcotics operation resulted in the arrest of 11 people police believe to have been involved in bringing methamphetamine to Kerr County.

On Tuesday morning, five search warrants were executed in the 300 block of Skyview, which is in Ingram, according to a release from the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation ended at 5:30 a.m., and the warrants were executed at about 10:30 a.m. 

Sixteen people were named in 23 felony arrests, the release said.

“As sheriff, I am very pleased with the investigation so far, and the assistance and cooperation of all the agencies involved,” said Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer. “To the drug dealers, I have only one thing to say, and that is ‘this is the beginning, and we are coming.’”

The operation included personnel from the sheriff’s office; the Ingram and Kerrville police departments; Kerrville Fire Department; the Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Texas Department of Public Safety; United States Marshall’s Office; Kerr County Constable Precinct 3; the Texas Attorney General’s Office; Department of Homeland
