Jackson Police Make Big Cocaine Bust

The Jackson police have confiscated about $50,000 worth of cocaine.

Officers intercepted the drug shipment Tuesday morning and arrested five Jackson-area residents. A sixth man was arrested Friday in Houston.

Police say the bust netted two kilos of cocaine that were being shipped from Houston with a private delivery service.

According to Jackson Police Lieutenant Garth Burnside, the investigation in this case went on for about a year before the arrests.
