Drug ring spreads to Mexico

A Grand Junction-centered drug ring has ties to a Mexican kingpin, authorities said this morning in a press conference in the Mesa County Justice Center.

Authorities are hoping to work with Mexican officials to arrest a man identified only as “Cain,” Dan Rubinstein, Mesa County chief deputy district attorney, said today at a press conference in which he announced that a four-month investigation had resulted in the arrests of 25 people since Tuesday. Eleven more remain at large.

The investigation also resulted in the seizure of 10 pounds of methamphetamine, nine pounds of cocaine, more than $144,000 in cash, nine firearms and eight vehicles.
