Eight suspects linked to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in Mexico have been arrested in Dallas on federal drug charges, accused of trafficking methamphetamine and other drugs from a “super-lab” and selling them out of a used car dealership over the last year, authorities announced Wednesday.
The suspects are also accused of using homes in Dallas and DeSoto as laboratories to recrystallize the meth, according to a federal indictment, which was unsealed Wednesday.
