This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Drug bust caps long local probe (North Carolina)

A multi-agency drug bust resulted in an arrest and the seizure of drugs and firearms late Friday, Sheriff Wayne Gay announced this morning.

The bust was the result of a several-months-long joint drug operation involving the State Bureau of Investigation, the Wilson Police Department, the Tarboro Police Department and the Wilson County Sheriff's Office.

Felipe Rodriguez, 33, of 4629 Tyler Lane was arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and trafficking amphetamines.

Rodriguez was placed in the Wilson County jail under $2 million bond.

Gay said officers seized more than 2 pounds of cocaine, 40 grams of meth-amphetamine, two handguns, one long gun, a bulletproof vest, paraphernalia associated with selling drugs and about $80,000.

The cocaine was seized during a stop of Rodriguez's vehicle. Gay said Rodriguez was intercepted while attempting to complete a drug deal.

Law enforcement officers then obtained a search warrant for his residence.

The investigation into Rodriguez began in October when he was arrested for possession with intent to sell methamphetamine.

Gay said the large busts over the past three weeks were made possible by the cooperation of several agencies.
