Police and federal agents on Tuesday celebrated the take-down of a group accused of funneling methamphetamine and other drugs from Mexico into the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Seven people, believed to be part of the "Tony Hernandez Drug Trafficking Organization," were arrested Monday in Dallas, officials said in a news release.
Dallas police and FBI agents seized drugs, guns and several vehicles, including a Bentley, during the raids, according to the news release.
The investigation involved numerous undercover purchases involving significant quantities of methamphetamine and large amounts of cash as well as several court-ordered wire taps.
According to the news release, Tony Hernandez took over the gang after his brother, Gonzalo Hernandez, was murdered by members of the Zetas Mexican drug cartel.
