A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., has indicted nine people on charges of conspiring to sell large quantities of crystal methamphetamine in the nation's capital as part of a drug smuggling operation directed by cartel bosses in Mexico, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Wednesday.
Federal police said Wednesday they captured the new leader of a drug gang formerly led by jailed U.S.-born suspect Edgar "La Barbie" Valdez Villarreal, in another blow to a cartel fighting to control the region south of Mexico City to the Pacific resort of Acapulco.
