PHOTO GALLERY: 11 suspected meth traffickers nabbed
Eleven East Texas residents suspected of trafficking more than 50 grams of methamphetamine were arrested early Tuesday and hauled into custody — many still in their pajamas — during an early morning raid by local, state and federal authorities. Officials from both Cherokee County and Jacksonville participated in the roundup. "These were long, long-time, high-end, dope dealers who were filling the county full of poison," explained Cherokee County Sheriff James Campbell. "Hopefully this will send them away for a long time." The raid stemmed from indictments a federal grand jury issued on Jan. 23 that effectively charged each the 11 residents with a federal drug violation involving the distribution of more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.
