Drug Ringleader Suspect in Court

Scales of Justice

The alleged ringleader of a major cocaine dealing operation made his first court appearance in Abbeville.

James Woods was arrested Monday night in Dothan. Police said they picked him up after getting a Crimestoppers tip.

Authorities seized nearly 1.5 pounds of cocaine with a street value of more than $80,000 on Friday.

Three other people also face trafficking charges in connection with the raid at Woods' home in Headland.

Woods is being held in the Henry County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
