Agents seized several guns, nearly three pounds of black tar heroin and liquid methamphetamine similar to the drug found at a meth lab in Stockton, Calif., with ties to Mexican cartels.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says the 34-year-old Amanda Park man suspected of leading the organization attempted to hide the drug trafficking with the operation of a cedar shingle mill. He and two others are charged by indictment with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and money laundering.
