Four Accused Of Running Cocaine On Amtrak
Four Accused Of Running Cocaine On Amtrak

Sacramento (CBS13) -Four people have been accused of running an elaborate drug ring on Amtrak trains, evading detection for more than a year, according to authorities.

Federal agents say at least four people were part of an alleged ring to transport hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cocaine by flying people from Detroit to San Francisco, and then given kilos of cocaine and told to ride the train back to Detroit via Amtrak.

The criminal complaint against the suspects says they allegedly scouted security on the route and found nothing that would disrupt their deliveries. After more than a year of flying under the radar, federal authorities finally got tipped off and the ring was busted.

Frequent Amtrak riders say you shouldn't expect to see many bag checks on Amtrak trains.
