Federal agents net 13 arrests in drug sting

Drug trafficking, guns, large amounts of cash and even a former NFL player, were all part of a joint law enforcement operation that garnered over a dozen arrests in Longview. 13 arrests were made in Longview connected to an investigation by federal agents that had dated back to January 2010. Charged with counts of conspiracy, drug trafficking, weapons, all were taken off the streets in the past week.

"I think that is the best thing that could have happened and its long overdue," says Longview resident Janine Corbin.

A surprise on the arrest list was 27 year old Willie Andrews of Longview, a former Baylor University student, and former player for the NFL's New England Patriots.

"I'm sorry that the young man football player ended up in the middle of it," Corbin says.

The 13 arrested had lengthy arrest records, a combined 120-plus arrests. Agents confiscated over 30-thousand dollars in cash , and 17 firearms from the group.

"We need them off the street especially if they have guns and stuff that its not safe for us and our children around here," says south side resident Leslie Perez.

"Very dangerous, its been a lot of scared people," says Corbin.

Some are just glad the group is off Longview streets.

"The best thing that could have happened was done, they got them off the street," Corbin says.

All of those arrested are being held on federal detainer, and could face anywhere from 10 years to life in prison on the array of charges against them. Andrews last played for the New England Patriots in 2007.

Extradited Gozitan charged over smuggling 9,500 ecstasy pills

A Gozitan extradited from the UK was yesterday charged with conspiring to import about 9,500 ecstasy pills inside the frame of a mirror in 2006.
Marcel Agius, 56, who lived in East Sussex at the time, is allegedly the third participant in the drug smuggling operation. Valletta-born Mario Abdilla, 54, of London, was two weeks ago jailed for 15 years and fined €25,000 after he admitted his part in it while Alfred Camilleri, 56, also of Valletta, will be tried by a jury on Monday.
During the compilation of evidence, Police Superintendent Norbert Ciappara, who was an inspector at the time, said that on September 6, 2006, the police were informed that Mr Abdilla was to land in Malta from England carrying drugs.
On arrival he was searched and, although no drugs were found in his possession, he was carrying methadone (a replacement treatment drug for heroin addicts). However, he also had a bill for a package he was meant to receive from England.
The police traced the parcel and learned that it was destined to be delivered through Thomas Smith postal company.
When the parcel arrived on a cargo flight the following day, the police scanned it. When they opened it they found thousands of ecstasy pills taped between a mirror and the back panel of its frame, the superintendent said.
Mr Abdilla picked up the drugs in a controlled delivery.

Delta Air Lines baggage handler charged this week in an international drug smuggling scheme was no stranger to the feds or airport security personnel.

Delta Air Lines baggage handler charged this week in an international drug smuggling scheme was no stranger to the feds or airport security personnel.

According to records in U.S. District Court in Detroit and airport officials, Cordell Coke had his Detroit Metro Airport security badge revoked in 2002 after he lied on his badge application by submitting a fake Social Security number.

He pleaded guilty in 2003 to possessing a Social Security card that was produced illegally -- a misdemeanor for which he paid a $525 fine, records show. He didn't serve any jail time. His security badge was reinstated in 2004.

"A misdemeanor of this type does not disqualify you from getting a badge," said Michael Conway, communications director for the Wayne County Airport Authority.

Coke, 37, of Canton was one of nine defendants -- eight of them baggage handlers -- released on bond Friday after being charged in connection with a drug-smuggling operation at Detroit Metro Airport that relied on airport workers sneaking suitcases filled with drugs past security. Authorities say Coke was part of a scheme that ran marijuana and cocaine from Jamaica to Detroit by stashing the drugs in suitcases aboard Detroit-bound flights.

The bust was one of two Thursday involving a total of $4 million worth of drugs, federal authorities revealed Friday.

Angela Coke, Coke's ex-wife, was in court Friday. She said she believes her ex-husband is innocent and that he's being targeted because he is of Jamaican descent.

"I don't believe that he did it," she said, adding her ex-husband does not live extravagantly. "He drives a piece of crap car that I have to push in the street. ... He doesn't even have cable, for crying out loud."

Mary Donnelly, whose Jamaican husband, Huram Josephs, also is facing drug charges in the Jamaican operation, echoed similar sentiments.

"This is not the man I've known for 10 years," said Donnelly, who is weeks away from having a baby. "There have been no red flags, no extra money for God's sake. We have used cars. He works mega overtime."

According to Donnelly, Josephs has worked at Metro Airport for 17 years with no troubles.

Josephs, 41, of Ypsilanti, a Delta baggage handler, was released on bond and ordered to remain on a tether while the case is pending.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub also ordered the following defendants released on bond: Glenford Stephens, 48, of Lathrup Village; Rex Lee, 27, of Dearborn; Kevin Jernigan, 49, of Dearborn Heights, and Christopher Bradley, 36, of Inkster. All were charged in the Jamaican operation.

Majzoub also released on bond other defendants charged in a separate drug operation that involved marijuana being flown in from Houston. Those defendants were: Clifford Skinner, 38, of Detroit; Cher Denton, 38, of Detroit, and Kelvin Atwater, 40, of Saginaw.

They face charges that include conspiracy, possession with intent to distribute and illegal importation of narcotics.

They face up to life in prison if convicted.
