Alleged drug kingpin may have to forfeit wash

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Nineteen people were charged for alleged drug dealing and money laundering.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — An Air Force One Express Car Wash is on the list of properties an alleged drug kingpin may have to forfeit, ABQ Journal reported.

The Dec. 18 story stated that 15 men and four women have been charged in an alleged drug dealing and money laundering operation. The activities appear to have involved pounds of marijuana and cocaine and millions of dollars.

According to the story, the ring leader was 33-year-old Christopher Roybal. The indictment seeks property forfeiture of Roybal’s residence, the carwash and a money judgment of more than $4 million.

The investigation began in August 2011. Since that time, the agents bought 8 pounds of cocaine and 18 pounds of high-grade marijuana. Last Friday, U.S. Attorney’s Office agents executed warrants and served restraining orders on six bank accounts.

“We’re not going to stop with these arrests,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Carol Lee said in the news release. “We’re going to hit the accused drug traffickers where it hurts: Their wallets. Our message to drug traffickers in New Mexico and elsewhere is crystal clear: We will bring you to justice no matter what it takes. And we will go after everything you made or used when you broke the law.”
