Federal agents arrested 290 people and seized some $3.3 million in assets, including a small plane and a yacht, in a series of drug raids throughout Florida this past week week.

Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration also confiscated more than 600 pounds of heroin and opioids as well as more than 35 weapons.

The DEA says that the dragnet is part of ‘Operation Cazador,’ which resulted in the closure of a dozen pharmacies in Florida.

The agency also seized more than 200,000 opioids and other pills as part of its effort to combat an epidemic that has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans every year, according to NBC News.
