Authorities in Colorado have indicted over a dozen people after a taco truck was uncovered as a meth-dealing front. 

Gawker reports that Colorado State Attorney General John Suthers made the announcement about "Operation Cargo" yesterday. The sting produced 17 indictments and the seizure of 55 pounds of meth, which officials say was imported from Mexico with cocaine under the direction of Juan Carlos Gonzalez. The 37-year-old allegedly sold the product from his BMW, while Maria Arellano has been accused of selling meth from her taco truck in Denver.

Of the 17 indictments, all but two of the suspects have been arrested. Charges include intent to distribute a controlled substance, conspiracy, tax evasion, and money laundering. Suthers characterized the operation to the Denver Post as reckless, with customers "[walking] up to [the] food truck and order a side of meth with their taco."
