FBI: Mexican Drug Cartel Profits Invested in U.S. Horse Racing

A Mexican drug cartel is accused of using Bank of America Corp. to invest money generated from selling cocaine into U.S. horse racing, Bloomberg reports.

Jose Trevino-Morales, the brother of the cartel’s alleged leader, was indicted by a grand jury June 11.

“The ultimate goal of this money laundering operation was to provide Jose Trevino with apparent legitimate assets purchased and maintained by illegally obtained money,” Preece , a special agent with the FBI, said in a statement.

Court filings show that Los Zetas drug cartel  is one of the largest in Mexico and funnels thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the U.S. each year, according to Bloomberg.
