Continued investigation into the drug trade in Chattanooga has yielded another cocaine-related arrest. Last week, investigators with the Chattanooga Police Narcotics Unit arrested five co-conspirators of a cocaine distribution ring.
Investigators arrested yet another man on a charge of cocaine for resale on Wednesday. 33-year-old Randy Holub of Palm Coast, Fla., was arrested at 5440 Highway 153 while negotiating the buy of more that a kilogram of powder cocaine.
Holub’s arrest is the sixth arrest in as many days that involves at least a kilo of powder cocaine. Narcotics investigators are still looking for one man indicted on conspiracy charges last week. Operations by the narcotics division have targeted the transportation, distribution, and resale of cocaine in order to reduce the frequency of other crimes related to the trade of the narcotic.
In addition to the cocaine, investigators seized close to $30, 000 and a 1995 Dodge truck.
