Suspected Drug King Pin Has Preliminary Hearing

Stephen Parsons appeared in front of Judge David Bottger Thursday. The prosecutor called four law enforcement officers to the stand in three separate cases being made against Parsons for his alleged involvement with a major meth, cocaine, and marijuana distribution ring.

The witnesses all participated in Operation Zamboni, a multi–agency operation spanning from Colorado Springs to Phoenix. Judge Bottger found the evidence presented was sufficient enough to move forward. Parsons is scheduled to be arraigned July 28th.
