Greely, Colorado Sees Large Drug Bust

Published by:

A large scale drug trafficking ring was busted up when the Drug Enforcement Administration arrested 23 individuals. Authorities are saying that the individuals were buying drugs in Mexico and Arizona so that they could bring them back to Colorado and distribute them.

How the drugs were brought to Colorado was through hidden compartments within pickup trucks. Amongst those drugs were methamphetamine, marijuana, and cocaine.

It is believed that the suspects sold drugs throughout the northern Colorado area, Wyoming, Nebraska, and a number of other states. In the meantime, the authorities were able to arrest the suspects and take the drugs off of the street.


It All Started with a Broken Headlight

An Athens, Georgia police officer followed a car until it pulled into an apartment complex because it had an out headlight. What resulted was more than just a citation over an out headlight, but an arrest for possession of drugs.

Brandon Fleming, 23, pulled into the apartment complex parking lot and was questioned by the officer upon exiting his car. Upon questioning Fleming, the officer found that he was wanted on other charges, so he searched the car and found marijuana and a digital scale.

Fleming has been charged with possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of public housing, and simply possession with intent to distribute. He was also charged with having drug paraphernalia.
