    An international drug ring that brought crystal meth and marijuana into South Jersey has been broken up. Today the Camden County Prosecutor announced that after a 22-month investigation 28 people have been arrested.

    Officials say the drug pipeline ran from Mexico through Texas to Ohio and finally to New Jersey.

    Camden County prosecutor Warren Faulk,

    Faulk: The seizures that we had are somewhere in street value in excess of $600,000 with the methamphetamines.  But this was a constant ongoing replenishment.  They did not bring in huge amounts in a single shipment they would bring in 20 to 30 pounds in each shipment through the U.S. Postal Service or other parcel delivery services and that would come in two, three, four times a week.

    Law enforcement officials say the drug operation brought up to 150 pounds of marijuana, and four to six pounds of crystal meth into New Jersey each week.
