Colorado drug task force disbanding

DENVER (AP) - A top Colorado drug enforcement task force is disbanding over a lack of resources.

The South Metro Drug Task force serving Arapahoe, Douglas and Elbert counties has been fighting drug crimes for 23 years.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Thursday that investing limited resources to specific crimes is becoming more difficult because of a lack of funding.

Robinson says drug enforcement will still be handled by local agencies.
