Federal drug charges filed against six North Carolina men

The Tuscarora Indian Nation Beaver Clan chief is in deep legal trouble after his arrest about 100 miles south of Raleigh. Five others were arrested in raids targeting an alleged drug trafficking operation. The raids were carried out by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Robeson County sheriff’s deputies.

Five Maxton men -- including the 54-year-old chief and his 34-year-old son -- as well as a 30-year-old Rowland man, were all charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine.

Two of the men were also charged with distribution of oxycodone, while one man is facing charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Law enforcement officials said more than five dozen weapons were seized in the raids.

The chief has been described by the FBI in affidavits as the leader of the alleged drug trafficking organization. The group is said to be tied to others in Mexico, Texas and Louisiana.

The FBI said its investigation began nearly two years ago and that the organization has in that time trafficked hundreds of kilograms of marijuana and dozens of kilos of cocaine. The FBI said it used undercover informants and wiretaps in its investigation.

The federal agency said the informants were motivated by patriotism and a sense of community to act against the defendants.

Another man is charged in documents with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and cocaine, but has not been taken into custody.

Anyone facing federal drug charges should speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer before talking to law enforcement officials or prosecutors. You can contact Dysart Willis to talk to a skilled attorney about your case.
