Agents bust multi-state drug ring

January 25, 2005

NORFOLK -- A regional narcotics task force working with federal agents arrested more than a dozen suspects in a multi-million dollar multi-state drug ring that used Hampton Roads as a base for distributing massive amounts of marijuana and cocaine and laundering the proceeds.

One federal officer described the Peninsula-based operation as one of the largest in terms of drug proceeds.

A court document places the total value of the cocaine, crack and marijuana the organization handled between September 1996 and Jan. 14, 2005, at more than $20 million.

The arrests began early Monday morning on the Peninsula and South Hampton Roads, Richmond, Houston, Dallas, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Charlotte, and Lexington, Ky., and included an educator.

At least 10 of the defendants are women, according to the indictment.

One of them, Pamela Yvette Hoffler-Riddick, is the regional assistant superintendent for Prince George's County, Md., schools and a former school administrator in Virginia Beach. Court papers say Hoffler-Riddick deposited large sums of money into banks and credit unions.
