DORAVILLE, Ga. Thirteen employees of a General Motors assembly plant have been arrested for allegedly selling drugs to an undercover police officer who spent 18 months posing as a co-worker. 
The workers were arrested Thursday and Friday at the plant 12 miles northeast of Atlanta. ``We pretty much caught them by surprise,'' said Doraville police Col. Clifford Edwards. ``They had no idea what was coming.'' Edwards said the officer gained the trust of employees while working among them on the plant's assembly line before purchasing cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines and bootleg whiskey. More drugs were found after police dogs searched the cars and lockers of GM employees. GM cooperated with police, giving the officer a job and providing money for him to make drug purchases, Edwards said. The plant has about 4,000 workers and assembles four models of minivans.
