Fifteen indicted on drug charges

Thursday, December 4, 2003

ST. LOUIS -- Fifteen men from Missouri and Illinois have been indicted on drug trafficking charges, U.S. Attorney Ray Gruender's office said Wednesday. If convicted, they could have to forfeit a total of $3.6 million in money, vehicles and jewelry.

A federal grand jury indicted the men on Nov. 20. The indictment remained sealed, however, until 13 of the men were arrested Tuesday and Wednesday, Gruender's office said. The office said Obade Bailey, 34, and Phillip Scott, 28, both of St. Louis, remain at large.

A phone message left at Gruender's office after business hours was not immediately returned.
