In April of last year an eighteen month investigation came to an end with the arrest of Chevell Hamilton, otherwise known as Big Mook. "He's been a pain in the neck for law enforcement for some time" said DEA Agent, Kieth Billiot during an interview in July. Today in federal court agents and police officers who have dealt with Hamilton waited anxiously to hear if the federal charges would keep him off the streets. "Because we've been involved in this case for a long time, the DEA, and ATF, and we watned to see how long Mr. Hamilton was going to be gone" said Assistant to the chief, Duane Huddleston. "Hamilton was considered by law enforcement agencies to be one of the major traffickers in the city" said First Assistant U.S. Attorney, Bill Flanagan.
