Birmingham police, DEA agents announce arrest in Birmingham of major regional cocaine supplier
A 40-year-old Ensley man has been indicted in Birmingham on federal drug trafficking and weapons charges after an investigation found him in possession of 35 kilos or about 70 pounds of cocaine and nine guns, law enforcement officials announced today.
Officials placed the street sales value of the drugs at an estimated $30 million.
Birmingham police and federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents arrested Milton Kennard Whitlow after raiding his home on Nov. 9, the officials said. On Tuesday, Whitlow was indicted by a federal grand jury.
Officials described Whitlow as a drug trade figure for Birmingham and northern Alabama. They said his arrest will disrupt the flow of cocaine for metro Birmingham and Atlanta.
