A big time drug bust has taken hundreds of pounds of cocaine off the streets.
The U-S Attorneys Ooffice, along with several other federal and state organizations are involved in Operation Gator Bait. It started several years ago in Baton Rouge - and is still continuing in Houston, Texas. It's put 10 people behind bars in Baton Rouge. Willie Jones Junior is one of those men. He's been convicted of trafficking millions of dollars worth of cocaine in Baton Rouge. The US Attorney David Dugas says another organization is already trying to take the place the one that was busted. He says several federal and local offices are working to get the drug problem under control.
