Federal investigators are probing a Jamaican drug trafficking and money laundering organization operating in the Atlanta area and elsewhere that's allegedly selling large quantities of cocaine, marijuana and MDMA/Ecstasy and shipping it through Federal Express, United Parcel Service and the U.S. Postal Service.
The leader of the drug ring is an Atlanta man named Michael L. Bennett who also goes by the name "Bundown," investigators say in a Sept. 29 filing in federal court in Atlanta.
The feds say Bennett "is allegedly one of the largest brokers and distributors of cocaine and marijuana between the United States and a Mexican drug cartel," and that he controls a distribution area from Boston to Florida.
The feds say Bennett uses various businesses in the Atlanta area to allegedly receive packages of illegal narcotics and to launder the illegal drug proceeds.
