Trial ordered for alleged meth ringleader

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - A man accused of running a methamphetamine ring out of the Mission Bay Sports Center will stand trial. Forty-one-year-old Jason Boone waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday.

Boone is charged with transportation, sale and possession of meth and faces eight years in state prison if convicted.

Authorities allege Boone, the center's owner, was the ringleader of the drug operation. He and eight other people were arrested last June as part of "Operation Boone's Farm," an undercover investigation during which officers allegedly purchased a half-pound of meth.

Authorities said undercover officers also learned that lockers at the sports center were being utilized as a drop location for drug deliveries and payments between suppliers and customers.

Five co-defendants in the case have pleaded guilty to charges. Boone will be back in court in June.
