DEA Agent Nate Fountain has taken thousands of pounds of drugs and millions of dollars in drug money off the streets of Houston and Detroit.

Drug Wars

Alumnus Nate Fountain (BS' 99) was bit by the narcotic bug as a new patrolman in Carrollton, Texas.

After 2-1/2 years and 400 arrests in Carrollton -- mostly on narcotic charges -- Fountain joined the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), where he has served as a Special Agent for nine years. Every day, he is on the front line of the War on Drugs, combating the narcotics trade in Houston, one of the largest hubs for drug distribution in the country.

In 2011, Fountain earned the Southwest Regional Award from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force for breaking up a Mexican drug trafficking ring that was distributing narcotics across the country to Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; St. Louis, MO; and Charlotte, NC. Using advanced investigative techniques, the operation led to the seizure of 700 kilos of cocaine, thousands of pounds of marijuana and $10 million in cash.
