How Operation Tumbleweed Stole Christmas:
Authorities have busted a $1 billion pot-smuggling ring that had been sneaking 400,000 pounds across the Mexican border every year. Operation Tumbleweed led to the indictment of 59 people yesterday and 39 arrests for felony charges, Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard said. The so-called Garibaldi-Lopez drug-trafficking ring had smuggled 200 tons of marijuana into the country annually since 2003, according to Goddard. The 2 million pounds smuggled in over that time period has an estimated wholesale value of $1 billion. Traffickers wearing night-vision goggles and aided by coordinators hiding in the hills would drive stolen vehicles, each holding 2,000 to 2,500 pounds of marijuana, on a weekly basis, authorities said.
