Quoting Curious1:
Any updates on the 19 arrested for drug trafficking?

Looking at the jail's website, only a few of the 19 are still locked up... Otherwise haven't heard anything else.

Nothing will happen to them, in a few months we will see the same faces on the arrest list, it will be repetitive.
