HINESVILLE, Ga -- A drug investigation ended with a Fort Stewart soldier facing charges.
Police arrested and charged Private First Class Mario Figueroa with cocaine trafficking.
They say the arrest is part of a three-month drug investigation at the southeast Georgia Army post.
Fort Stewart officials said in a news release other soldiers were apprehended Tuesday on suspicion of drug crimes, but did not say how many or if they were being charged. Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson declined to comment further.
Pvt. 1st Class Mario Figueroa remained jailed Wednesday following his arrest last week.
Hein said investigators questioned the soldiers and several were cleared of wrongdoing.
It was not immediately known if Figueroa had an attorney. In Georgia, someone can be charged with cocaine trafficking for possessing as little as 28 grams.
