Task Force Busts 5-State Drug Ring

Agents have busted a drug ring spanning five states and the drugs were all coming in from Mexico.

The Metro Drug Task Force in Colorado say the group was bringing more than 40lbs of cocaine into Colorado every week.

35 people have been indicted.

Only six remain at large.

Arrests were made in Texas, Illinois, Alabama, Nevada and Colorado.

Among those taken into custody was Ron Rocha, a volunteer assistant baseball coach at Regis University in Denver.

The cocaine originated in Ciudad Juarez and was secretly transported to Denver.
