    57 People Accused of Helping Sinaloa Cartel Smuggle Drugs to L.A., Other Cities

    57 People Accused of Helping Sinaloa Cartel Smuggle Drugs to L.A., Other Cities Across Country

    POSTED 9:54 AM, AUGUST 8, 2018, BY CINDY VON QUEDNOW AND CHRISTINA PASCUCCI, UPDATED AT 12:34PM, AUGUST 8, 201857 Indicted in Drug Trafficking Bust Involving Sinaloa Cart
    Fifty-seven people were indicted on federal drug trafficking charges involving the notorious Sinaloa Cartel, as raids were conducted throughout Southern California Wednesday, officials said.


    FBI officials on Aug. 8, 2018 released these photos of drugs and money allegedly smuggled during trafficking operations involving the Sinaloa Cartel.

    The raids were a culmination of a three-year long investigation into three trafficking organizations who helped transport “bulk quantities of drugs” from Mexico to the Los Angeles area and other cities throughout the U.S., said Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s L.A. field office.

    Twenty people were arrested Wednesday, while two were already in custody. The task force is still looking for eight fugitives, including top level Mexico-based traffickers, officials said.


    The indictments, which were unsealed Wednesday, allege that the defendants received the drugs from the cartel in northern Mexico, smuggled them into Los Angeles through hidden compartments in vehicles and distributed them to Arizona, Kansas, Minnesota and New York, Delacourt explained.


    In addition, those involved in the extensive operations, including pilots, couriers and money collectors, would return the proceeds to Mexico, officials said.

    During the investigation, authorities seized 850 pounds of methamphetamine, 900 kg of cocaine, 100 pounds of heroine, 50 pounds of marijuana and $1.4 million. The combined street value of the seized drugs is estimated at $35 million per month, Delacourt said.

    Those indicted face a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, and some could face life in prison, officials said.


    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, IRS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, United States Department of Homeland Security as well as several local law enforcement agencies were involved in the raids Wednesday.

    Separate the ILLEGAL ALIENS and put them in Federal Tent City on Federal Land with a panel of Federal Judges!

    OUT of the local and state jurisdiction, courts and jails.

    SERVE TIME AND DEPORT THEM ON THE SPOT!

    NO AMENITIES AND NO VISITORS EXCEPT VIA SKYPE!

    I put this on my FB page. We keep hearing that illegals on the whole don't commit any more crimes than US citizens. I don't believe that at all. The influence of drugs multiplies the criminal activity that the dealers and pushers might get apprehended for.
