Thread and Bread

Hosted by

Hundreds of federal agents descended this week on downtown LA’s Fashion District, making arrests as part of what prosecutors say is a sophisticated operation to launder money for Mexican drug cartels. Authorities took 9 people into custody, and seized more than $90 million. Federal prosecutors are calling it “Operation Fashion Police." Joe Mathews is California columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and Joe Mozingo is a reporter with the LA Times. They spoke to KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
