12 Arrested In Dallas On Drug Conspiracy Charges Reporting Jack Fink DALLAS (CBS 11 News) ―
Federal prosecutors have charged 12 people with running an elaborate drug conspiracy.
DEA agents say some of the drugs were sold within 1,000 feet of Maynard Jackson Middle School which is located at 2929 Stag Road in Dallas.
Prosecutors say the DEA called it 'Operation Crazy Water' because the PCP allegedly being sold was liquid. Officials say when the drug is ingested it can make people 'crazy'.
Police say they found approximately 2.75 gallons of liquid PCP, with an approximate street value of $320,000; approximately 4000 Ecstacy pills, with an approximate street value of $40,000; and 30 pounds of marijuana, with an approximate street value of $24,000. Nearly $30,000 in cash, numerous firearms, and nine vehicles were also seized.
Those charged in the indictment and arrested include:
* Ricky Gyrone Williams, 38 * Shawn Joseph McKenzie, 37 * Gregory Deon Jones, 29 * Barron Keith Fields, a/k/a "Twin," 33 * Buford Charles Malone, 37 * S hamvell Antijuan Williams, a/k/a "Chub," 27 * Montez Antonio Ashby, a/k/a "Dafro," 30 * James Edward Crawford, Jr., 27 * Chakedra Johnson a/k/a "Kedra," 35 * Lakendra Irene Avery, a/k/a "Kendra," 22 * Antonio Dewayne McFail, 33 * Roy Lee Harris, 58
Also charged in the indictment, but not yet arrested, are:
Ten men remain in custody. A federal judge released two women charged.
According to the indictment, the defendants would use stash houses known as "traps" to store the drugs and their cash gained from sales. Officials say some of the defendants would 'work the door' at the houses to restrict entry to only certain customers and to act as police "look outs".
All defendants will be back in federal court on Thursday.
Relatives of some defendants say they were surprised by the arrests, and that they can't imagine their family members doing what they're accused of.
