Berrien drug agents help in international bust

December 9, 2003

Nashville - South Georgia drug agents helped bust an international drug ring.

One hundred and thirty-seven pounds of marijuana were found at a home on Patricia Lane in Ray City two weeks ago. The people arrested squealed on their dealers in Texas, who've now been arrested.

Sheriff Jerry Brogdon says the drugs are being smuggled in from Mexico and more arrests are ahead. "We're working with the authorities in Texas and the FEDS as the case grows bigger and bigger every day," said Brogdon. "I expect more arrests, maybe even today."

Drug agents seized 275 pounds of marijuana in Texas.

The names of those arrested are not being released because the investigation is ongoing.
