AMARILLO -- A Mexican drug cartel operating in Amarillo is busted. 

The DEA, FBI and local law enforcement all worked together to bring down the alleged drug ring; confiscating drugs, money and weapons.

12-members of the Gulf Cartel were arrested this morning in Amarillo and Dalhart. More arrests may be coming in the future as the investigation continues.

During the investigation, undercover officers made numerous purchases of cocaine and methamphetamine and used search warrants to gather the evidence.

The 13-suspects in custody were indicted earlier this month on conspiracy and drug trafficking charges.

DEA special agent in charge Dan Salter says the suspects were using Amarillo as a hub to deliver drugs across the panhandle.

If convicted, the defendants face anywhere from 40-years to life in prison as well as millions of dollars in fines.

Along with the arrests, investigators also confiscated more than two kilos of cocaine, almost two pounds of meth, a half million dollars in cash and six guns.
