From CNN:

Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) — Federal agents arrested 45 people in Georgia believed to be members of a top Mexican drug cartel and confiscated nearly $2.4 million in cash, authorities said Thursday.

The arrests were made by members of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the Clayton County District Attorney’s Office and other law enforcement agencies, the DEA said. The investigation, called Operation Choke Hold, started in May 2009.

The suspects are believed to be connected with La Familia Michoacana, which “was responsible for the importation of bulk quantities of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana into the metro Atlanta area,” the DEA said.

In addition to distributing narcotics in metro Atlanta, the drug-trafficking organization also shipped large quantities to Florida, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois and North Carolina, the DEA said.

During the arrests, the DEA said in a release, authorities seized 46 pounds of methamphetamine, a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory, nearly 95 pounds (43 kilograms) of cocaine, 4,120 pounds of marijuana, 20 firearms and $2.349 million.

It used to be that 1%er gangs ran the meth in the south but no more. The Hell’s Angels have a alliance with Eme, or the Mexican Mafia so depending on Eme’s standing with LFM the Angels may be getting pushed out of some of their areas, along with any other biker gangs rolling in six states LFM has set up in.

This might explain the influx of Hell’s Angels into South Carolina along with an influx of Blood, Folk Nation and other gangs that had strongholds in Georgia and North Carolina.
