The suspected leader of an interstate marijuana distribution ring was arrested this week after investigators seized more than 80 pounds of marijuana, his Mercedes Benz and several guns, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
Trent R. Harris, 27, of Kennewick was arrested Wednesday by sheriff's detectives and members of the Spokane Regional Drug Task Force, the sheriff's office announced today.
Arrested Thursday was 32-year-old Anthony Andre Wofford, alias Anthony Dre, who investigators say had more than $11,000 in suspect drug money connected to Harris' operation.
Investigators had "developed information" after Harris' arrest that led to Wofford's arrest during a traffic stop by Washington State Patrol, according to a news release.
Investigators placed a GPS tracking device on Wofford’s 2002 GMC Envoy on Jan. 22, according to a search warrant.
Detectives say Wofford routinely traveled to Spokane to collected money and distribute large quantities of marijuana. Wofford was arrested Thursday and is due in Superior Court today on one charge of delivery of a controlled substance.
Harris was arrested Wednesday and was released from jail after appearing in court Thursday, records show.
Idaho State Police and the Tri-Cities Metro Drug Task Force are working with the Spokane County investigators.
