An anti-drug task force has arrested 17 people on drug-related warrants. The warrants stem from 14 search warrants that were served back on November 9th of last year after a four-month investigation in the Mason City area. Each of the 17 individuals picked up during the raid were charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of cocaine base as well as other drug-related charges. All those arrested except one were arrested on federal charges and were taken to a federal holding facility in Sioux City after being booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail. Six individuals remain at large: 21-year-old Taneesha Hamilton, 24-year-old Ricky Wilkins, 22-year-old Larry Robertson, 31-year-old Melvin Tucker, 21-year-old Stephanie Fraction and 27-year-old Lamont Harper.
