Two Dallas women arrested for cocaine possession

Two women from Dallas were arrested in Louisiana on Tuesday morning after it was found that they were transporting nearly 22 pounds of cocaine.

According to police, a 41-year-old woman and a 19-year-old woman along with an unidentified child were traveling on Interstate 20 when a deputy pulled their vehicle over just after 2:20 a.m.

The woman driving the car did not have her driver’s license with her, and she told the officer that she was traveling a long way in order to visit family. The women denied having drugs in the vehicle but allowed police to search the car. Law enforcement officials then found nearly 22 pounds of cocaine in the back of the vehicle.

Five arrested for drug charges before Christmas

Nearly $1 million and many weapons were seized from the five suspects and authorities believe that they were taking the money and guns to Arizona.

Officials are now becoming worried because of the frequency of these drug arrests and they think that Dallas may have a growing role in drug trafficking. An investigation into the issue began a few weeks ago.
