Drug Enforcement Agency


A federal Drug Enforcement Agency affidavit obtained by the Associated Press says a Mexican cartel is suspected of laundering $2 million dollars in drug proceeds through Plains State Bank in Kansas, to avoid tighter restrictions on U.S. currency in its home country.

A search warrant filed Tuesday in federal court lays out the investigation into alleged money laundering between 2011 and 2014 by a cartel known as the Mexican Mennonites and others.

The warrant was executed against a former banking official.
