Federal authorities say they have uncovered a Mexico-based drug trafficking and money laundering organization with ties to Atlanta and Houston.
Prosecutors in Atlanta charged six people in a federal complaint filed on Monday with being involved in the drug ring.
They say Nemias Cintora-Gonzalez was a local methamphetamine and cocaine supplier for the organization who often traveled to Texas to get his supply.
He’s accused of working with Jorge Armando-Reyes, Israel Edgardo Rivera-Pacheco, Victor Hugo Morales-Avila, Edgar Cintora-Gonzalez and Brenda Perez as part of the ring. It was not immediately known whether the suspects had attorneys.
Authorities say they seized more than a dozen guns, a bulletproof vest, ammunition, counterfeit money and drugs from the Smyrna apartment where several of the men lived.
