On Oct. 4, approximately 700 federal, state and local law enforcement officers participated in Operation Delta Blues, possibly the largest drug bust in Arkansas history. Seventy people were charged, including five law enforcement officers. The charges included drug trafficking, firearms offenses, money laundering and public corruption. The two-year investigation, which focused primarily on Helena-West Helena and Marianna, utilized 16 court-authorized wiretaps.

The conversation above is included in the indictment for a drug trafficking organization based in Helena-West Helena and directed by Sedrick Trice and Leon Edwards. It's part of a transcript of a cell phone call Dempsey Word, who is also named in the indictment, made to Trice at 8:44 p.m. on Feb. 26, 2011.
