Moorhead drug bust targets traffickers

A 20-year-old Texas woman was arrested this morning in Moorhead as part of an ongoing investigation of drug trafficking in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Samantha Lynn Barrientos is in the Clay County jail on felony controlled substance charges. Police also seized marijuana and cocaine valued at $40,000 from a south Moorhead home.

Police say the drugs were packaged to avoid detection by drug sniffing dogs. They believe the drugs are being shipped from Texas to Moorhead.

Police say this latest bust is part of an ongoing investigation of a Texas drug connection.
