Attorney General Terry Goddard announced the indictments of 21 people Monday. For three years, he says, the suspects brought drugs from Mexico to Pinal county and then made shipments across the country.

A man from Arizona City is accused of leading the group.

Border Patrol agents on horseback found $1 point 5 million dollars worth of pot in the desert Sunday.

The marijuana was in a truck and weighed 18 hundred pounds.

On Monday, agents found 900 pounds of pot in backpacks near State Route 85 and another 670 pounds of marijuana near Nogales.
