authorities claim to have shutdown a drug smuggling ring operating out of
Vista, California, after a year-long investigation by the DEA, FBI, Department
of Homeland Security, and local law enforcement. The United States Attorney's
Office charged 19 defendants in federal court with conspiracy< /a> to distribute a>
cocaine and methamphetamine.
According to the unsealed
complaint, the defendants were importing the meth and cocaine from two Mexican
