Cops: Cocaine operation ran by sisters

Two Lubbock sisters are in jail accused of running a sizable cocaine operation.

Federal court records say 29-year-old Refugia Gamboa was pulled over in a traffic stop by Midland Police.

Officers found two kilos of cocaine in her car. However, Gamboa claimed to be her sister Pauline. Once officers looked into the situation they charged both sisters.

Another suspect who is not named in court records told police that between the two sisters they had been supplied with 8 kilos of cocaine.

If convicted the women face between 10 years to life in prison.
