"Drug cases are like a rope that never ends," said Jerry Nystrom, team leader for the Tri-Agency Task Force. "One case leads to another and you just keep trying to get to the top."
Working drug cases is more complicated and requires a greater time commitment than most other types of investigations, he said.
