DEVELOPING:

The Drug Enforcement Administration says it has struck a major blow against one of the most powerful Mexican drug-trafficking cartels with the arrests during the past two days of 175 members, includIng the group’s three alleged leaders.

The Gulf Cartel has trafficked tons of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine into the U.S. and several Latin American countries. Those named in the indictment face charges of drug trafficking, kidnapping and attempted murder.

“We have arrested U.S. cell heads, stripped the cartel of $60 million in cash, imprisoned their brutal assassins and significantly disrupted their U.S. infrastructure,” said DEA Acting Administrator Michele M. Leonhart.
