3 Washington County residents accused of cocaine ring

Monday, Dec. 24, 2012, 12:01 a.m.

A federal grand jury indicted three men last week on charges of operating a drug ring in Washington.

The four-count indictment accuses Michael Sutton, 30, and John Wright, 32, both of Washington, and Zachary King, 22, of Houston of distributing at least 5 kilograms of cocaine between January 2011 and June 2012.

Sutton also is charged with distributing less than 28 grams of crack cocaine. King faces an additional charge of distributing less than 500 grams of cocaine.

All three face 10 years to life in prison upon conviction and a fine of up to $10 million.
