DEA Busts $9 Million Drug Ring in Virginia

July 30, 2010

The Drug Enforcement Administration says it has busted one of the largest drug rings in the Hampton Roads area.

The federal agency says the $9 million operation was allegedly run for the past ten years by the owner of a Virginia Beach restaurant.

Fred Phillip Wills Jr., his wife, Makishea Bobbi Wills, and Kendall Dwight Callaham were arrested earlier this week on a federal indictment on multiple drug distribution charges.

The indictment alleges that the three sold more than 244 pounds of cocaine and smaller quantities of marijuana and laundered the proceeds through the numerous restaurants Fred Wills has owned over the years under the "Big Daddy" name.

Family members at the latest restaurant and Wills' lawyer declined to comment.
