MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say four members of a drug trafficking gang have pleaded guilty to charges in U.S. District Court in Alabama.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release that the pleas came in Montgomery last week. Prosecutors say 18 members of the gang have pleaded guilty to drug-related crimes. One person faces trial.
Those entering pleas Thursday were 36-year-old Worldly Dieago Holstick of Auburn, 43-year-old Timothy Lamar Spinks of Auburn, 28-year-old James Earl McIntyre of Montgomery and 41-year-old James Lee Hamilton of Santa Rosa, California.
Prosecutors say each of the men played significant roles in the distribution of drugs between Georgia and California. The drugs included cocaine and marijuana shipped in boxes containing between five and 10 pounds.
Prosecutors say Holstick led the drug trafficking organization.
