Drug Bust Ends With Federal Arrests

Ten East Texans are facing federal drug charges. They're accused of being part of a big drug trafficking ring in Lufkin, Diboll and Nacogdoches.  This police footage shows the final phase of the government's investigation. It was called Operation Kings Court. A four year probe targeted individuals believed to have distributed cocaine and marijuana. Those arrested are suspected of being near the top of the drug chain said Assistant Nacogdoches Police Chief Mike Kelly. "These aren't your street corner dealers and your retail dealers. This is an organized activity that stretches from Mexico through Texas and into other states."   Six of the suspects made a federal court appearance Friday morning in Lufkin. Arraignment for the remaining five is set for next week.
