If convicted, the defendants face life in federal prison.

“Violent crime is found at the center of many drug trafficking organizations and the combination of drugs and firearms seized during Thursday’s operations confirms just that,” said DEA Dallas Special Agent in Charge Eduardo A. Chávez.  “The DEA and all of our law enforcement partners remain committed to dismantling these criminal networks and will never stop until those offenders face justice.”
