ROBESON CO. -- Three men are in jail, accused of trafficking more than $13-million worth of drugs.

Officers received a tip that a big shipment of cocaine was headed to the Fayetteville area. They followed a tractor-trailer to a home in St. Pauls in Robeson County where the drugs were unloaded.

Officers also found more than $1-million in cash.

Willie Fort, Craig Alford, and Humberto Sanchez, Jr. are now in the Cumberland County Detention Center.

Officers say the men have distributed hundreds of kilos of cocaine in North Carolina.

They are each being held under a $1-million bond.
