Feds drop case against 2 Flint postal workers charged in drug trafficking investigation
FLINT, MI – Charges have been dismissed against two Flint postal workers originally accused of being a part of a drug trafficking ring, according to federal court records.
Defendants Johnny Coley and Tracey Hudson were previously charged with delayed mail and conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Coley was also charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine base and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime.
But U.S. Magistrate Judge Curtis Ivy, Jr. on Thursday, Sept. 29, granted a motion filed by the U.S. Attorney’s office to dismiss the cases against Coley and Hudson without prejudice, meaning the pair could be recharged in the future.
The United States of America hereby moves for leave to dismiss without prejudice the complaint against Defendants Johnny Coley and Tracey Hudson because prosecution of this matter at this time would not be in the best interest of justice,” prosecutors argued in their motion to dismiss.
