Drug Ring Sells From Chicken Restaurant

Nearly two dozen people have been arrested after Central Texas authorities went undercover into a drug ring that included black tar heroin being sold from a small-town chicken restaurant drive-through window.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says 20 people have been arrested for felony delivery of a controlled substance. And while serving warrants, officials also arrested three other people and charged them with possession of a controlled substance.

The focus of the undercover operation began targeting methamphetamine suppliers in October 2016. During the operation, they also discovered that black tar heroin was being sold from a now-closed Bush’s Chicken in Hamilton.
