A methamphetamine trafficking ring was dismantled in Volusia County, on Florida’s east coast, and its ringleader, a former Florida corrections officer, was arrested.
In the bust, agents seized about 1.4 pounds of methamphetamine, 348 grams of cocaine, and 11 hydrocodone pills from an Ocala apartment and searched the home of Christina Guess, 44, who had worked for 12 years for the Florida Department of Corrections and was the ringleader of the ring.
The FBI and the investigation bureau of the aforementioned county had begun investigating the criminal scheme in March 2021 and discovered that Guess, who had served a previous sentence in 2019 for drug trafficking, was the ringleader, the WFTV9 channel picked up.
In total, 10 people were arrested, including Reshard Campbell, 26, who supplied the drugs to Guess for sale.
Guess and Campbell distributed methamphetamine in Volusia and Lake counties on a monthly basis, with their organization trafficking up to 24 pounds (ca. 11 kg) of uncut methamphetamine over the course of a year.
