This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Meth investigation results in arrests of 53 suspects (Oklahoma)

OKLAHOMA CITY - A 10-month investigation into methamphetamine trafficking in south-central Oklahoma and northern Texas led to the arrests of 53 people Tuesday on a variety of drug charges by federal, state and local authorities.

The investigation, dubbed Operation 700 Ranch Round-Up, began last May, when authorities learned that meth was being supplied in Oklahoma by traffickers in northern Texas, according to Gary Olenkiewicz, head of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Dallas office.

Officers in both states conducted surveillance, made undercover drug purchases, executed search and arrest warrants, and gathered evidence to indict and prosecute the defendants, officials said.

Investigators said they seized more than 15 pounds of meth during the operation, along with "crack" cocaine, marijuana, about $161,000 in cash and 49 weapons.
