A suspected drug-trafficking operation in Willis has been put out of business. Montgomery County Sheriff investigators raided three homes Tuesday where they found $42,000 hidden in a mattress. Authorities also discovered books that had been hollowed out to hold cash for shipment.
Arrested in the raid were two illegal immigrants, Francisco Soto, 34, and Selene Ortiz, 36. Both are charged with money laundering and weapons possession.
