The West Metro Drug Task Force last week arrested four people suspected of selling heroin, specifically in Jefferson County and throughout the metro area, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office reported.

Detectives believe the group was distributing about a half pound of heroin on a weekly basis to about 100 customers, primarily young people in their late teens to mid-20s in Jefferson County, including Lakewood and Arvada.

The four were arrested as a result of warrants executed at two Denver addresses identified as being the suspects' residences. Police identified the four suspects as Mexican nationals who were in the country illegally.
