(JACKSON CO.) - A Jonesville man who is charged with dealing methamphetamine was selling drugs to settle a debt with a Mexican drug cartel active in the Midwest, police said.
Police used an undercover informant on at least two occasions this month to buy meth from Gilberto Garcia, 38, of 209 Taylor St., according to formal charges filed by Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash. The police affidavit said Garcia told investigators he owed money to the Sinaloa drug cartel, one of the world's largest illegal drug operations.
Garcia has been charged with two Class A felony counts of dealing in methamphetamine and a Class D felony of receiving stolen property. He is behind bars in Bartholomew County Jail on a $750,000 surety bond.
