A federal indictment issued Tuesday charged 13 people with smuggling cocaine from Naco, Sonora in Mexico to Naco, Arizona through a narrow tunnel nearly as long as a football field.
Nine of the suspects were arrested, all but one of them in the United States, on charges of conspiring to import, possess and distribute cocaine, and other offenses. Those arrested on the U.S. side of the border were expected to appear before a federal magistrate in Tuscon Wednesday. Jim Molessa, a spokesman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, said authorities have seized $1.5. million in cash and 2,600 pounds of cocaine as part of the investigation that began about a year and a half ago.
