Five arrested for drug charges before Christmas

Five Dallas-area men were arrested after being suspected of being part of a drug trafficking organization which is active in at least two states.

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.
