Miami Men Busted with 5 Kilos of Coke in Ft. Myers

I recently read a story out of the Atlanta media, where it seemed that officials were almost bragging that they were the biggest drug hub in the South, and not Miami.

"We are the source of supply for Miami. We're no longer a consumer area. We are, literally, a supply area," says the director of Atlanta's High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area department, Jack Killoran. Good going with your job, by the way.

Whether that's true or not, I have no idea, but there's no denying there's still tons of wannabe cocaine cowboys in the Magic City.

Just last night two Miami men, Timothy Williams, 38, and Melinore Fair, 57, were arrested on Interstate 75 near Ft. Myers after deputies found 5 kilos of cocaine estimated to be worth $150k under the back seat of their black Ford Taurus.
