The Justice Department announced the arrest of more than 750 individuals in the DEA-led Operation Project Python, which was charged with investigating a Mexican cartel called Jalisco New Generation Cartel. In addition to the 750 arrests, law enforcement seized over 20 kilograms of drugs and $20 million in cash. The arrests took place across Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Chicago, and Atlanta.
The charges include violent offenses, money laundering, and trafficking cocaine, meth, and fentanyl-laced heroin into and through the United States.
Law enforcement has declared that this is merely “phase one” of Project Python and that it plans on using evidence gathered during these arrests and search warrant executions to continue pursuing other members of the cartel.
