LEA COUNTY - A major bust blows the lid off cocaine trafficking in Lea County.
Authorities say they broke up a drug ring out of Arizona that was sending cocaine across state lines into Lea County.
They think the ring is tied to a major drug cartel in Mexico.
At least six agencies took part in the crackdown that netted a whopping 16 pounds of cocaine.
Officials say that's worth about half a million dollars on the streets.
They also seized three cars.
No word yet on how many people they arrested.
