Eight members of an armed drug trafficking organization who were recently indicted on federal charges include a 44-year-old Jacksonville woman who played a major role in the operation, according to court documents.

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports Kimberly Walker and seven others are charged with conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute MDMA, a drug also known as ecstasy or molly, and another drug commonly referred to as flakka.

According to court documents, Walker appears to have been the person who was calling the shots in what is described by federal investigators as a drug trafficking organization.

According to transcripts from phone conversations that were intercepted by federal agents, Walker made sure narcotics were available for sale at a “trap house” on 14th Street, which is described by undercover agents as a home where narcotics are stored and sold from.
