Man accused of running drug ring from behind bars

CENTRALIA -- A Centralia man imprisoned at the Coyote Ridge Corrections Center in Connell is accused of leading a drug trafficking operation from behind bars.
The Chronicle reports Forrest E. Amos, 30, was the focus of a six-month investigation involving local, state and federal agencies that resulted in arrests or charges referred Monday against Amos and 20 other people in King, Thurston, Lewis and Cowlitz counties.
Centralia Sgt. Jim Shannon said Amos will face a number of drug-related charges. He's accused of using personal information from other inmates to set up false phone lines and make collect calls to arrange sales of pain pills and marijuana. He's also accused of working to smuggle drugs into prison.
