Multiple drug charges in joint investigation
Nineteen members of a methamphetamine trafficking ring have been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Thirteen of those charged were arrested on Wednesday, May 29, during an early morning round-up conducted by federal, state and local law enforcement.
“Our agency and members of our Narcotics Unit spent many hours involved in this investigation during the past year,” said Macon County Sheriff Robert L. Holland. “This investigation is a good example of when citizens report suspicious drug activity to law enforcement and they think nothing is being done about it ... there’s a good chance there is.”
