Chef Pleads Guilty to Running Multi-Million Drug Ring

Yesterday the owners of Virginia Beach's soul food restaurant Big Daddy's: A Touch of the South pled guilty in federal court to "conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine and marijuana." Sentencing is February 28th and they face a maximum of life in prison.

Back in August, chef/owner Fred Wills, his wife, Makeishea Wills, and the kitchen manager, Kendall Callaham were arrested and charged with allegedly running a $9 million cocaine drug ring. The federal indictment said they did things like hide cocaine in Styrofoam take-out food containers and deal out of the restaurant. The restaurant was closed by the feds.
