64 U.S. Soldiers Caught in Drug Bust

How else are they supposed to wake up at 4 in the morning and carry all that heavy equipment?

Fort Stewart, Georgia, was locked down last week as authorities busted a drug ring. According to anonymous sources, 64 soldiers from two different battalions were involved. That’s a lot of cocaine, if all 64 good ol’ American warriors were getting supplied. Almost enough to make Charlie Sheen second guess himself!

Popular Military reports: “We dedicate resources and work closely with our local law enforcement partners to identify and suppress illegal drug use in our ranks,” Maj. Gen. James Rainey, senior commander of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield, said in a news release.

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office arrested Pvt. First Class Mario Figueroa on drug trafficking charges, according to Maj. Jeff Hein of the LCSO Drug Task Force. The arrest was the result of a 90-day investigation by LCSO, Fort Stewart’s Criminal Investigation Division and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

A private was a key player in the drug ring?! He doesn’t need to be arrested, he needs a promotion! He’s clearly resourceful, quick thinking, and quickly earns the loyalty of those around him (he can cut off their supply if they cross him.)

    It would be interesting to know if these were military personnel that have returned from a deployment or have always been stateside.
