The U.S. Marshals Service said it arrested the suspected leader of a multimillion dollar marijuana conspiracy, allegedly responsible for trafficking thousands of pounds of the drug in Huntington.
Moises Gamboa, 48, of Mexico was arrested in Rocky Point, Mexico. Gamboa was indicted by a federal grand jury in Huntington in 2010 for the distribution of more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana in the area, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service. He is believed to be wanted out of other states for similar drug trafficking charges and is connected to Mexican drug cartels, the news release said.
Gamboa was living on the western coast of Mexico when he was apprehended by the U.S. Marshals Service. Gamboa is expected to be extradited to face charges in West Virginia.
