DPS Special Agents and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agents were contacted and assisted with the investigation. DEA Special agents adopted the case.

The driver – Annette Graves, 36, of Riviera Beach, Florida – was released to DEA Special Agents.

The Drugs were allegedly being transported from Anaheim, California to Columbus, Ohio.
