Twelve suspects face multiple felony drug charges tonight after a bust involving illegal drug sales.
It's a case investigators have been working on for months.
Pima County Sheriff's Investigators served a search warrant on Tuesday to an Ajo residence in the 300 block of W. Arroyo Avenue, about two hours west of Tucson.
Ten of the suspects were found in town and arrested on the same day. Two were already in custody on unrelated charges.
The suspects include: 49-year-old Adria Rosa Sanders-Chi, 36-year-old Eduvijen Maria Romero-Cantua, 46-year-old Marcelino A. Rivas, 30-year-old Jatana Danielle Kibbey, 35-year-old Michael Gentry, 26-year-old Amber Nicole Keller, 27-year-old Guillermo Gonzalez-Padres, 44-year-old Rubi Meza Bustamante, 41-year-old Robert Glenn Cordell, 20-year-old Conrado Aguila Valenzuela, Jr., 26-year-old Christopher Gary Nelson and 22-year-old Adrian Alberto Tadeo-Lopez.
The operation was a joint effort as part of the border anti-narcotics network initiative.
