KGBT 4 - TV Harlingen, TX: 18 accused part of multistate drug ring
LAREDO, Texas Federal officials today announced 18 people from Laredo, Georgia and Mexico have been arrested for allegedly being part of a drug ring.

Prosecutors say the ring has been using commercial tractor trailers to distribute marijuana and cocaine throughout Texas, Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee.

After the drugs were dropped off with distributors, the profits allegedly were concealed in ice chests and other containers and hauled back to Laredo.

The 12-count indictment alleges the suspects ran a drug and money laundering operation going back to 1996.

The indictment was returned July seventh.
