Attorney general’s office indicts 9 in Arizona money-laundering case

TUCSON, Ariz. — A grand jury in Tucson has indicted nine people on charges
accusing them of laundering proceeds from illegal drug trafficking.

The state Attorney General’s Office said the indictment by a Pima County grand
jury results from an investigation begun as a result of a federal Drug
Enforcement Administration investigation into cocaine trafficking in the Tucson
area.

According to the office, the money laundering operation handled $1.1 million of
cash from 2010 through the beginning of 2013.

The office says money was laundered through bank accounts and real estate
purchases.
