The FBI is looking for a man accused of being part of a drug- trafficking group that was busted last week after searches of homes and businesses in El Paso.

Carlos Armando Bernal Quintero, 29, a Mexican citizen, is part of an investigation dubbed Operation White Shamrock. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and has black hair, brown eyes and a thin build.

Bernal was allegedly part of what the FBI called the Nuñez Operation. "We have reason to believe it is part of the Sinaloa cartel," said FBI spokesman Special Agent Michael Martinez.

Anyone with information on Bernal may call the FBI at 832-5000.
