Summary: Wave of drug charges sweep across California

A large police operation sweeping across the state has resulted in dozens of arrests. Most arrests were in the Southern California region, but others were out of state. Alleged mafia and drug cartels were targeted, and many people were arrested on drug charges

Several law enforcement agencies, including state, county and local law enforcement, were able to collaborate to serve warrants and make arrests. Forty-seven individuals were arrested with charges ranging from solicitation of murder, drug distribution, assault with a deadly weapon, narcotics trafficking, firearm violations, extortion and conspiracy. The arrests were tied to supposed Mexican drug cartels operating in the United States.
