The Drug Enforcement Administration is unsealing an indictment against a high-ranking member of a Mexican drug cartel.
The DEA said Jose Guadalupe Tapia-Quintero, 42, was indicted by a federal grand jury in February on drug possession and money laundering charges.
DEA officials said Tapia-Quintero is from Sinaloa, Mexico, and owned several businesses, including bus and tractor-trailer companies in Mexico. Authorities say he used that business to move meth across the Mexican border into Arizona.
DEA officials have made three arrests in connection to Tapia-Quintero and seized 148 pounds of meth, 30 kilograms of cocaine and more than $770,000.
