Amarillo, Texas - Three Amarillo men accused of running a cross country drug ring remain in federal custody tonight.
After an undercover investigation spanning several months, federal authorities have finally taken down the alleged ringleaders of a methamphetamine distribution operation based in the Texas panhandle.
32-year-old Adrian Garcia Baeza, 34-year-old Jose Luis Pando, and 29-year-old Manuel Garza also known as "Valentine" or "Valle," were arrested yesterday.
They are charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, a level four offense.
