DENVER, Colo. — Photos of more than 100 suspects from the massive April 26 drug bust cover one wall of the "war room" at the Metro Gang Task Force headquarters.
Computers hold digital recordings of about 160,000 phone calls secretly obtained from more than 50 wiretaps.
Diagrams outline the connections uncovered during an unprecedented 18-month investigation. Photos of suspected drug stash houses are taped to grease boards alongside notes about the locations.
