Five alleged associates of Mexico’s deadly Los Zetas drug cartel, including the brother of the cartel’s second-in-command, were issued horse owner’s licenses by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission.
Jose Trevino Morales, the older brother of Los Zetas gang leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, and four other alleged cartel associates, were granted licenses despite being indicted in Texas May 30 for using a horse breeding and racing operation to launder $20 million of cartel drug money.
Jose Trevino’s wife and nine others were also indicted. However, it is believed that the indictment was not caught during the criminal background check because the grand jury documents were not unsealed until June 12.
Jose Trevino and his associates operated Zule Farms on 84th Street in Lexington, Okla. Prior to that, they were living in the Dallas-Fort Worth area without suspicion. A police investigation alleges that the cartel began its money laundering operation in 2008.
