More than two dozen people have been charged in San Diego in what authorities say was a large-scale operation to smuggle methamphetamine into California from Mexico.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said Friday that the law enforcement action also resulted in seizures of more than 1,000 pounds of methamphetamine, 200 pounds of cocaine and 28 pounds of heroin.

The San Diego County district attorney says 16 people were arrested this week and 12 are at large.

Authorities say the defendants worked for a Mexican cartel known as the Knights Templar which focuses on smuggling methamphetamine.
