Unraveling a drug distribution ring that spanned the West Coast

Fronteras drug freeway

Court Exhibit: US v. Anchondo

A trial exhibit that shows the geographic scope of the Berrelleza-Verduzco trafficking ring.

Drug distributors operate an illicit export business that depends on freeways that run from California and Arizona to Canada. If you drive these freeways, chances are you've passed a car or truck secretly holding a cargo of heroin, meth or cocaine.

It's an illegal business that touches every city, every small town in every state in the west. Austin Jenkins from the Fronteras Desk introduces us to a smuggling ring that operated from Arizona to Washington state.
