6 arrested in money-laundering ring in Arizona, NY

PHOENIX -- Authorities said six people believed to be members of a money laundering organization in Tucson and New York are in custody while two others are being sought.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office said the group was involved in laundering $1.6 million through a Tucson casino and bank accounts from June 2010 to May 2013.

Authorities confiscated 84 pounds of marijuana that was sent from Tucson to New York through commercial shipment in October.

Acting on a tip, authorities served a warrant on the shipment and discovered drugs inside a 60-galllon air compression unit that had been resealed and painted over.

The AG's Office put racketeering liens on 15 bank accounts associated with the six people arrested plus a Tucson home that authorities believe was paid for with drug money.
