A Trafficking Jam
Federal and local law enforcement officials in Vicksburg, Mississippi, rounded up eight folks accused of running a major crack and cocaine trafficking ring; there's another man on the loose. How major was it? Reports the Associated Press, undercover agents "purchased 380 grams of crack [and] seized three kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride and more than $100,000 in cash."
So why are we mentioning this? Because law enforcement officials also discovered during their investigation that one of the biggest drug operations in Vicksburg's history was being supplied by someone in Dallas. As the AP reminds, this shouldn't come as a shocker: "Vicksburg and Dallas are located along Interstate 20 where law enforcement agencies have made numerous arrests for drug trafficking." --Robert Wilonsky
