More than two dozen people were indicted for being part of an organization that shipped methamphetamine from Mexico to Southern California, authorities said Thursday.

Sixteen of the 27 people facing conspiracy charges related to drugs were arrested Thursday as part of an investigation that began 16 months ago. In case of being convicted, face a minimum sentence of ten years in prison, while those who are charged with other drug-related charges could receive up to life imprisonment.

The organization involving members of La Familia cartel, which operates primarily in the Mexican state of Michoacán, and members of two criminal organizations Latinas in Southern California, authorities said.

Methamphetamine was imported in liquid or unfinished and then was crystallized, a step called “frosting”, the researchers said.

Jose Juan Garcia Barron, 33, of Ontario, controlled shipments by air, sea and land through the border between Mexico and the United States, said the feds.

The drug sold in the county of Los Angeles gang members or their associates, who gave a portion of the proceeds to the Mexican Mafia gang in exchange for protection, authorities said.
