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
cocaine and methamphetamine.
According to the unsealed
complaint, the defendants were importing
the meth and cocaine from two Mexican
Cartels based in Tijuana and Guadalajara, Mexico. Due to the type and quantity
of the drugs involved in the conspiracy, each defendant faces a mandatory
minimum sentence of 10 years in prison.
If you have been charged in a
drug conspiracy in state or federal
a> court it is important that you consult with
an experienced criminal defense attorney as
soon as possible. Contact my office
