Thomasville -- A Thomas County man wanted on federal drug charges will be picked up by U. S. Marshalls soon for extradition to Albany. Roderick Curry was arrested by drug agents in Thomasville last night.

Drug squad commander Kevin Lee says the 24-year-old was the only one of eight people in a cocaine ring who hadn't been arrested since August.

"We went to him on numerous occasions, and his counterparts on numerous occasions, buying crack cocaine with the money from the federal government, DEA money," Lee said.

Curry is facing federal charges for conspiracy to posses and distribute cocaine. If convicted, he is looking at a mandatory minimum of ten years behind bars.
