High Hopes For Boston After Drug Arrests

A long investigation into Boston-area  narcotics trafficking is resulting in one of the biggest busts in  Massachusetts history.  

A warrant sweep was conducted yesterday for  suspects in the Operation High Hopes case, and over 40 kilograms of  fentanyl was seized.  

More than 30 people were arrested, including  Edward Soto-Perez and Robert Contreras of Roxbury.  

Officials say Operation High Hopes came from the title of a Frank Sinatra song.  It came about after one of the defendants was known to wear a fedora, just like Sinatra did from time to time.

Prosecutors say  those two men are top level suppliers for national and international  drug cartels.
