HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WBRC) - Several Alabama law enforcement agencies worked together to detect and remove illegal drugs from the mail.

The North Alabama HIDTA Drug Task Force (NADTF) partnered with Postal Inspectors, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and Birmingham Police Department, Alabama in May to remove illegal drugs from the mail. Investigators said 55 search warrants were executed during the weeklong effort.
