TUCSON, Ariz. — Federal authorities say they’ve broken up a drug trafficking organization operating along the Arizona-Mexico border.
They say the drug ring was responsible for trafficking kilo-sized quantities of heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine into the United States from northern Mexico.
Federal agents arrested three suspects in and around Phoenix and Rio Rico on Wednesday and one other person also is in custody.
They say seven other suspects named in a federal indictment remain fugitives and there are warrants out for their arrest.
Authorities say they’ve seized about 15 pounds of heroin, 14 pounds of methamphetamine, 1 kilogram of cocaine, and 350 pounds of marijuana during the course of the investigation.
