Officials declined to disclose the number under investigation or provide other details, but they said Gen. Tim Ray, the top general in charge of Air Force nuclear weapons, flew to F. Those under investigation have been removed from their duties until the probe is completed, the Air Force said. The 90th Security Forces Group is responsible for security at F. Warren as well as for the network of nuclear-armed Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles — a key segment of the U. This is the same F. Warren security group in which investigators uncovered and cracked a drug ring in Records obtained by The Associated Press in showed that airmen had bought, distributed and used LSD and other mild-altering drugs, as well as marijuana. That ring operated undetected for months; 14 airmen eventually were disciplined, of which six were convicted of LSD use or distribution. Those two bases, plus F. Warren in Wyoming, have been under scrutiny in recent years for numerous episodes of misconduct, including a cheating scandal and training failures. The Air Force has taken steps to address those problems, including investing more in training and equipment and launching a campaign to publicly emphasize the importance of the work done by this relatively obscure nuclear force. When any of us see those not living up to our high standards, we will hold them accountable using all of the disciplinary tools available under the military justice system.

Air Force discloses drug investigation at Cheyenne nuke missile base
CHEYENNE — Thirteen city residents were arrested this week on federal drug charges that authorities say cap a year-long investigation into a cocaine ring that originated in Mexico. The drug-trafficking organization operated by moving kilograms of cocaine from Mexico to the greater Denver area, where it was distributed here through a local dealer, authorities said. The arrests carried out Tuesday and Wednesday were the second round in the investigation that dismantled a narcotics ring suspected of bringing over pounds of cocaine into Cheyenne and Laramie County. Jay Erickson, resident agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration office in Cheyenne, called the collective arrests "a very significant case. Erickson added that the price of cocaine is usually higher when it is broken down into smaller quantities and sold to individuals. The first round of arrests occurred in late October and early November when six people — including Cheyenne resident Steven A. Gibson, 64 — were apprehended. The other five arrested were citizens of Mexico who were living in the Denver area, a release from the U. Attorney's Office in Cheyenne indicates. Most of those arrested this week were charged with possession or attempting to possess cocaine or marijuana. DCI alleged that Gibson was the local distributor who would convert some of the cocaine into crack cocaine and sell both drugs to locally based consumers. From there, authorities used phone wiretaps to identify Gibson's and Montoya-Ramirez's alleged sources as well as Cheyenne-based buyers, DCI said. Authorities searched Gibson's home in Cheyenne on Oct. During an arrest interview, Gibson said he obtained the drugs a day earlier in Denver and planned to redistribute them to his local customers, DCI said. Sali shot at two Laramie County Sheriff's deputies that month as they tried to arrest him for his role in a methamphetamine ring. Sali has since been sentenced to 60 years in prison. Thirty-one people eventually were prosecuted as a result of the Sali investigation, Farmer said in the release. Of those, 26 were local residents, and 25 of them have pleaded guilty. The other person is a fugitive, he said. The current investigation was a joint effort among several local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including Cheyenne Police, the Laramie County Sheriff's Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
