Over 300 horses connected with Drug Operation
Over 300 horses have be bought and trained by a Mexican Drug Cartel and are being auctioned in Oklahoma at Heritage Place Fall Mixed Sale. Some of these horses that have been auctioned have been bred by top racehorses. 15 people were charged for directing profits from drugs to quarter horses. A large amount of the horses found were at a ranch in Lexington, owned by the brother of two possible leaders of the Cartel. The first 12 horses accumulated $434,000 for the U.S. Treasury Department; the sale was carried out through Thursday until Saturday.
