Woman at Large After June Fed. Drug Roundup Turns Self In

    One of the two defendants who were still at large following a federal drug round-up involving the FBI turned herself in to authorities yesterday.
    Thirty-one year-old Elvada Latoya Davis is now behind bars in Wichita County.
    She was one of 30 people named in a federal sealed indictment and charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a cocaine base of 280 grams or more.
    They were charged after an investigation that began before New Years Day in 2009 and wrapped up earlier this year.
    FBI officials installed a camera on a light pole in the Budget Inn parking lot and recorded activity at the motel.
    Assistant US Attorney Brandon McCarthy says most of the defendants were caught on camera selling drugs to undercover agents.
    Twenty-six of the defendants have entered guilty pleas and are now awaiting sentencing.
    Sentencing dates are currently scheduled for November and December.
    If convicted, each defendant faces a sentence of ten years to life in prison and up to a $10-million fine.
