Last week, the U.S. attorney’s office charged five men for taking part in the trafficking of over 200 pounds of marijuana. Through special investigations by the Drug Enforcement Agency, DEA, and help from an inside informant, a lead was found for something other than marijuana. In Gretna, agents set up a surveillance location that captured the suspicious transfer of a large bag from one vehicle to another. When officers made their arrests, they found two and a half pounds of cocaine in the bag. The two men arrested were also charged with participation in the marijuana trafficking.
The DEA was able to put away several men who were taking part in the trafficking of a portion of the illegal drugs that go through the greater New Orleans area.
