EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A popular Mexican food restaurant in Central El Paso, a parking lot outside of a busy shopping center and a gas station in Horizon are some of the spots Sinaloa cartel members would move drugs in tool boxes or makeshift containers.

Drug traffickers and their associates would move marijuana and cocaine through the city, and money from sales across the United States often found its way back to the Sinaloa cartel in Juárez. Traffickers would move the drugs to Chicago, St. Louis, Atlanta and Philadelphia, according to a witness during a testimony in federal court on Tuesday.
