The federal charges number 103 separate counts in all, with the intention to distribute large amounts of cocaine and crack cocaine throughout East Tennessee.
In addition to conspiracy charges, they also face charges related to money laundering, possessing firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking, and maintaining a residence for the purpose of manufacturing or storing crack cocaine.
Investigators said the East Tennessee bust is one against a sophisticated drug trafficking and money laundering organization, responsible for cocaine being supplied in East Tennessee from the Atlanta, Georgia, area, via Mexican drug suppliers.
