I don't think they would do such a thing, but some of their crooked employees might. The ones that have been hanging out on the reservation alot lately!

Rumor has it that they were giving cars with dealer plates to people living on the res, so that they could run drugs with them and avoid suspicion. Not doing the drugs themselves, just making one hell of a profit off people who do. Supposedly there were a lot of things on the books that didn't add up either. Free repair jobs for friends, overcharges for those not fortunate enough to be their friend...stuff like that.

i doubt that. People got a parkway superstore courtesy car, which was licensed to drive if they got their car fixed. They don't have a lot of dealer plates to do such a thing. If anyone could, it would be employees with a dealer plate, cuz they are the only ones allowed to have one, unless you test drive a car. I think that you are making shit up, like the rest of rumor mill, who is saying they found cocaine in cars. If that was true, they would have arrested someone. NO arrests were made so far. I am anxious to see what happens too, but don't make shit up.

Bunch of crooks!! Everyone knows that everything they were doing would catch up with them eventually! They can't make arrests if they don't have one person to pin point it on!! Myself, I think it's quite humorous :) Only because they were dumb enough to think they weren't going to get caught!

harley d you are on here in everyone's business. YOu need to get a life and probably a job! BIg biker person probably. BIg guy how do you know about dealer plates, you giving them out in person, to know the real facts? NOT.....so you will find it's employees guilty, not them...it is obvious that they sell vehicles and RV's to indians, but that is not against the law... Go smoke some more pot with your alcoholic friends, and take a harley ride, then get a DWI. Facts are facts, it will all come out.

it is against the law to flip them dealer plates to do drugruns. it's obvious this is what they are used for. you don't need to be there to know a fact. are you one of the Wood's family members yourself, trying to make them look good or are you just mental?

No arrests made, looks like a waste of my tax dollars. The Wood's are a great bunch of people, mind their own business and don't mess with anyone. Looks like the FEDS trying to close down more local businesses.

They found nothing and they will find NOTHING.. Another big ploy by our bloated government.

It seems if they found anything the public would know.
Or maybe they Feds hit the place on the wrong day.

Too bad the plates said DEALER on them, that was the tip. So sad. It seems they have made a bad choice, but not likely the woods knew about it.

You want to find guilt, look to the person involved in the business for a long time, but's name is not on the dealership, who is as crooked as the day is long. His initials are JM. AND that salesman in Canton, who only the INdians would talk too! Those two will end up being the guilty party in this, not the wood family. Unfortunatly their employees have tainted their reputation. BUT hopefully the financial industry and customers will not take it out on the owners. It is obvious that most of the negativity put on this site, is by people jealous of the wood family, because they have a clue in life, and you guys can't even spell.

Arrests pending in drug raid

Law enforcement officers — including members of the St. Lawrence County Drug Task Force assisting agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration— raided the Parkway Auto Group dealerships in Canton and Ogdensburg on Thursday morning.

More than a year of preparation went into the raid, said an official working on the case.

The official confirmed investigators were searching for drugs; computers and business records were seized by agents from the Internal Revenue Service. The official said arrests will be made.

Police were using dogs, and investigators were searching cars on the dealership lot in Canton. At the same time, police were at the Parkway Country Polaris car and boat dealership in Ogdensburg. A closed Parkway store in Morristown was raided, as was Parkway Select in Ogdensburg.

The Parkway dealership in Potsdam was not raided and remains open, according to an employee who answered the phone there Thursday afternoon.

Employees at the Canton dealership would not comment on the raid, but were telling customers their computer systems were down for the day.

Greg Wood, Lisbon, a co-owner of the Canton dealership, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Tina E. Sciocchetti, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office, confirmed the agents were acting on a search warrant.

Guess your wrong! Looks like they found something!
