Centralia's Biggest Drug Bust
A joint undercover operation led to two arrests in Columbia and three in Mexico. But Centralia was the focus of the operation, with 13 arrests.
Centralia resident Gina Cox said she felt "a lot of shock that something that large can happen in this quiet of a normal town."
But other Centralia residents said they've known there was drug activity in town for a long time and they're glad something is finally being done about it.
During their investigation, law officers seized cocaine, ecstasy, mushrooms, marijuana, and prescription narcotics.
"There's hardly any mention of it at all until something like this occurs," said Cox. "And then everyone starts to wonder: is it my neighbor? Is it down the street? And you start to look at people a little bit different."
Police have warrants for 20 other suspects.
