Women plead guilty in Virginia to drug, laundering charges

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Federal officials say two Mississippi sisters have pleaded guilty to distributing synthetic marijuana and laundering millions of dollars in proceeds of the sales.

The U.S. Department of Justice said 51-year-old Kimberly Drumm and 49-year-old Bonnie Turner, of Olive Branch, Mississippi, pleaded guilty on Monday in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.

Court documents said the two women and a co-defendant led a southern California-based operation from which buyers could order synthetic marijuana, sometimes referred to as “spice.”
