Dozens Arrested In Early Morning Drug Raid

Dozens were arrested in an early morning drug bust in Longview. The FBI says the defendants were part of a conspiracy to traffic crack cocaine in and around Longview since 2002.

For months, Gregg County drug units have been investigating the alleged drug ring along with the FBI.

If convicted, each of the 36 defendants would face up to life in prison and fines of more than $4 million.
