SoCal FBI: Cocaine Dealers Used Private Jets To Funnel Cash-Loaded Bags From New York

The FBI has arrested an alleged, major cocaine trafficker tied to an underworld operation that hired privately chartered jets to fly Duffel bags stuffed with cash from New York to Southern California.

Based on surveillance and the results of search warrants, agents took Canoga Park-resident Atta Arab, 50, into custody late last month and charged him with conspiracy to possess and distribute massive quantities of the drug in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

Inside the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana, Assistant United States Attorney Joseph T. McNally said Arab is a flight risk and will remain locked up until his case is resolved.

Though the conspirators took counter-surveillance measures and telephonic security steps to evade detection, a 2011 tip to the FBI about the flights launched a federally-funded, joint task force probe that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, Orange County Sheriff's Department and Santa Ana Police Department.
