The investigation apparently involved a new cartel out of Jalisco, Mexico “facilitating the movement of fentanyl, cocaine, heroin & meth in LA & elsewhere,” the FBI’s tweet said.
More than 1,500 pounds of methamphetamine, worth approximately $112 million, were seized from the unspecified location. No further information was released about the investigation.
