DEA claims big Va. drug bust

The Drug Enforcement Administration says it has busted one of the largest drug rings in the Hampton Roads area.

The federal agency says the $9 million operation was allegedly run for the past 10 years by the owner of a Virginia Beach restaurant.

Fred Phillip Wills Jr., his wife, Makishea Bobbi Wills, and Kendall Dwight Callaham were arrested earlier this week on a federal indictment on multiple drug distribution charges.

The indictment alleges that the three sold more than 244 pounds of cocaine and smaller quantities of marijuana and laundered the proceeds through the numerous restaurants Fred Wills has owned over the years under the “Big Daddy” name.

Family members at the latest restaurant and Wills' lawyer declined to comment.

Yeah, but why can't they BUST the banker crooks who caused our economic calamity... You know the ones who robbed us, by getting bailouts and still they continue to commit the same crimes 'that got them into trouble". IE Goldman Sachs posting record profits while the rest of us sink deeper into this depression? but back on topic:

Big Bust! they have known for ten years this existed and just watched...yeah ok. Did he cut someone off, or maybe wanted to retire from it? Or its just someone that needed taking down in a believable manner? Never mind , WE will never hear the truth.
