Mexico’s drug cartel moves to U.S.

Mexico City — A series of drug-related kidnappings in Gwinnett County is part of the emergence locally of what federal authorities say is a problem of national scope: powerful Mexican drug cartels whose tactics have been honed in years of bloody conflicts in their home country.

They say the cartels operate in dozens of U.S. cities, including metro Atlanta, and are moving to consolidate their control of the entire supply chain of illegal drugs.

The Justice Department says that in the Atlanta area, Mexican trafficking organizations already control the lucrative methamphetamine trade, with the arrival of purer Mexican ice methamphetamine supplanting local powder meth production.  More from PoliceOne
