Attorney general's office indicts 9 in Arizona money-laundering case

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A grand jury in Tucson has indicted nine people on charges accusing them of laundering proceeds from illegal drug trafficking.

The state Attorney General's Office said the indictment by a Pima County grand jury results from an investigation begun as a result of a federal Drug Enforcement Administration investigation into cocaine trafficking in the Tucson area.

According to the office, the money laundering operation handled $1.1 million of cash from 2010 through the beginning of 2013.

The office says money was laundered through bank accounts and real estate purchases.
