Multiple federal agencies conducted a secretive raid in Arizona, capturing two dozen high-ranking members of the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel, an ICE spokeswoman said.

The International Business Times reports that the operation took place between the border cities of Lukesville, Ariz., and Sonoyta, Mexico.

The operation was led by Homeland Security with the help of U.S. Customs, FBI and DEA.

“The targeted Sinaloa cell has been responsible for the importation of millions of pounds of illegal drugs, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine, into the United States from Mexico during its existence,” said spokeswoman Gillian M. Christensen. “The organization is also responsible for the smuggling of millions of dollars in U.S. currency, along with weapons, into Mexico.”

Agents also seized assault weapons and hundreds of pounds of drugs.

“ICE applauds the government of Mexico for their bold action in taking down this criminal organization and for their continued pressure on the Sinaloa Cartel throughout Mexico,” she said.
