Dozens charged in international drug smuggling operation linked to CJNG

Federal prosecutors have charged dozens of men in an international drug smuggling operation orchestrated by Mexico’s Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

Monday’s 50-count indictment charges 41 people with cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, and meth trafficking and related crimes in the Houston and Galveston areas.

The indictment charges that all 41 defendants operated under the control of the CJNG. In the past week, law enforcement has taken 20 of the defendants into custody. Three were already in custody, two have since passed away, and the remaining 16 are at large.
