U.S. authorities in Arizona reported today they have dismantled a large cell of drug traffickers linked to the Sinaloa cartel, after arresting 20 suspects and confiscated $ 2.4 million in cash.

The Tempe Arizona, Police Department, reported that a joint investigation with the Narcotics Bureau (DEA) allowed detection of traffickers who received the drug in Tempe and distributed in New York, Alabama, California and other cities.

The investigation also led to the seizure of an aircraft, 10 vehicles, three tons of marijuana, 14 firearms and 13.6 kilograms of methamphetamine.

According to police, the cell trafficking was associated with the Sinaloa cartel and was headed by Leonel Leal Galvez, Norbert Montoya Meza and Jose Alonzo Rodriguez Rosas.

Doug Coleman, Special Agent in Charge of the DEA office in Phoenix, said the investigation was part of an initiative called “Operation Stampede Nayarit” designed to attack drug trafficking organizations in the Arizona border with Mexico.
