2 Amarillo Men Arrested in Meth Ring Bust in Odessa

- ODESSA, TX, (Local Big 2 News) - Federal agents and local officers busted an elaborate meth ring Thursday morning. Twenty nine people sit behind bars, accused of selling the drugs in the Permian Basin. Authorities also seized more than 11 pounds of meth in the bust.

"Agents were able to identify 32 people in the Odessa area, who were involved in this distribution ring," says U.S. Drug Enforcement Agent Will Glaspy.
