Parking lot crystal meth deals and a gun seizure on Interstate 10 were part of a nine-month Texas Department of Public Safety drug and gang investigation in El Paso.

The long-term, multiagency cases resulted in 17 arrests linked to the sale and possession of crystal methamphetamine and heroin, firearm charges and vehicles stolen in Lubbock transported to El Paso, said Lt. Elizabeth Carter, a DPS spokeswoman.

Most of the arrests went down at the end of October, although some of the crimes charged occurred months earlier, according to El Paso County Jail records. 

Seven women and 10 men, including two from Lubbock, were among the people arrested, DPS officials said.

DPS special agents worked with the state highway patrol, U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office and the El Paso Police Department.
