JUL 20 -- ST. GEORGE, UTAH – The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced today that on July 16, 2011, the DEA, along with other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, seized 13,806 marijuana plants found growing in the mountains outside of Veyo, Utah, and arrested 38 defendants who were in the process of harvesting the plants. Also seized during the operation was

100 pounds of processed marijuana, one loaded handgun, and four vehicles.

 

The investigation of this Mexican drug trafficking organization (DTO) has linked it to at least three marijuana grow operations that were seized last year in the same general area of southern Utah.

 

Approximately 70 law enforcement officers participated in the operation from agencies that included the Washington County Area Task Force, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, St. George Police Department, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Forrest Service, Utah Department of Public Safety, DEA Metro Task Force, Kane County Sheriff’s Office, Fredonia Marshal’s Office, and Washington County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue.

Cuevas rarely talked directly to his lookouts or drivers. But after being briefed by the supervisor, he made an exception. He called Lopez.

 

“What's happening?” he asked.

 

“The dogs are going crazy,” Lopez replied.

 

Cuevas worked for the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico's most powerful organized crime group. He was in the transportation side of the business. Drugs were brought from Sinaloa state to Mexicali, Mexico, in bus tires. Cuevas' job was to move the goods across the border and deliver them to distributors in the Los Angeles area, about 200 miles away.

 

The flow was unceasing, and he employed about 40 drivers, lookouts and coordinators to keep pace.

 

The canines circling the load car that evening in August 2006 were the least of his problems.

 

The canines circling the load car that evening in August 2006 were the least of his problems. Eight agents from a Drug Enforcement Administration task force had converged on the border. Not even U.S. customs inspectors knew they were there. The agents had been following Cuevas and tapping his phones for months.

Ramon Pequeno, head of the narcotics division of the federal police, said Rejon, alias "El Mamito" (Pretty Boy), ranked as the No. 3 leader of the Zetas and was one of its founding members.

 

Rejon, who in government documents is listed as either 35 or 41 years old, served in an elite unit of the Mexican army, which included a stint at the attorney general's office, before deserting in 1999. That year, authorities say, he joined up with 13 others, most of them former soldiers, to create the Zetas, initially the paramilitary protection force for the powerful Gulf cartel.

TUCSON – Three people are accused of trying to buy anti-tank weapons in Arizona for a drug cartel in Mexico. Federal indictments were recently unsealed in Phoenix. Court documents show the three also tried to buy a Stinger missile.

The accused were trying to buy the military weaponry for the Sinaloa Cartel. Court documents show they used pounds of crystal meth for a down payment on the weapons.

 

The case started in 2009 in Phoenix. One of the accused, David Diaz, approached a confidential informant working for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. They delivered nearly five pounds of crystal meth and $139,000 in cash. Then they brought ten more pounds to finish the arms deal.

 

Robbie Sherwood is the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Arizona.

 

"These are very serious charges, as the indictment that has been unsealed indicate. We will be proceeding to trial soon and we look forward to presenting our case at that time."

 

A Dragon Fire Anti-Tank Weapon, a Stinger Missile, (a surface-to-air missile like those used by Afghan fighters in the eighties to defeat the Soviets), two AT-4s, a shoulder-fired light anti-tank rocket, a variety of grenade launchers, two M-60 machine guns and three cases of hand grenades.

 

Court records show that Diaz was trying to buy the weapons for the Yucatan Peninsula. They were destined for druglords Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán and Ismael El Mayo Zambada, the leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel. The cartel is battling not only every other cartel in Mexico, but also the Mexican Army.

 

John Bailey, a Georgetown University professor who worked in Mexico most of his career, says this level of weaponry was likely designed to take on the Mexican government itself.

 

"It's the kind of weaponry that you'd expect to be used against the Army. These groups are willing to up the ante."The trial begins in April in Arizona.
