TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucsonan, Carlos David Nogales Sr. was sentenced to 18.5 years in prison followed by 7 years of probation for his involvement in a $2.8 million drug and money laundering scheme, according to a recent news release from the office of Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich,

According to the release, between 2011 and 2015, Nogales operated a money laundering organization that spanned across the U.S. The group also had more than a dozen people to launder the proceeds from marijuana that had been shipped from Arizona to various east-coast cities.

In April 2018, a Pima County jury found Nogales guilty of 35 felony counts including Fraud, Forgery, Money Laundering, Controlling a Criminal Enterprise, and Possession of Marijuana for Sale.

The case was investigated by the Arizona Attorney General's Office Southern Arizona White Collar and Criminal Enterprise Section and Special Investigations Section along with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. The investigation began after a Department of Economic Security audit revealed that Nogales fraudulently received $30,000 in state benefits by not disclosing income and assets on his applications.

He was also ordered to pay $3,790 in restitution to DES, $15,009 to AHCCCS, and $12,409 to Social Security.
