Drug Trafficking Properties Forfeited

(Portland, OR) -- Six-million-dollars in Oregon properties have been forfeited to the federal government, because they were used for drug trafficking. Fifty-three-year-old Fayao "Paul" Rong, of Houston, Texas, ran the operations. He was sentenced to nearly three years in prison. Homes in six counties were turned into marijuana grow operations. Excessive power use helped tip police to the operations. In one case, so much power was drawn a transformer exploded. Rong shipped 13-million dollars in marijuana to states where weed sales are illegal.
