Three men in Pacific Beach, CA were arrested as part of a marijuana-trafficking ring that extended to multiple states. The bust was part of a yearlong investigation by U.S. Postal Service and the Southwest Border Anti-Money Laundering Unit, and the three bosses were accused of shipping between 10 and 20 pounds of weed to customers everywhere from Texas to Massachusetts. Investigators say the operation netted the men about $20,000 to $30,000 a week.
The trio—28-year-old Matthew Schneider, 25-year-old Kyle Gillen and 24-year-old Chris Gillen—was arrested on Wednesday. Authorities recovered 300 marijuana plants and $500,000 in assets including cars, an SKS rifle and shotgun and $35,000 in cash. All three of them have been charged with selling and transporting marijuana, conspiracy and money laundering.
