Six men have been arrested and are being held on bond as high as $20 million after a huge shipment of cocaine was seized and discovered, according to the Ohio Attorney General.
The drug bust happened on Saturday in Columbus. From the Attorney General’s release about the incident:
“Authorities with the task force … made the arrests after gathering evidence indicating that the drugs were being transported from Mexico to Columbus on a semi-truck.
Investigators intercepted the semi-truck in Columbus and served a search warrant on an East Fifth Street warehouse where an estimated $3.4 million worth of cocaine was found. Members of the task force also seized more than $500,000 in cash, two stolen firearms, and multiple vehicles, including the semi-truck.”
