(EVANSVILLE) - Federal prosecutors say an Evansville public official has been indicted on charges he laundered drug money for a cartel that smuggled marijuana from Mexico into Indiana.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports Evansville Redevelopment Commission member John "Jay" Carter is named in the federal indictment unsealed Tuesday.

The indictment says Carter helped drug smugglers launder illicit funds through real estate transfers, business deals and financial transactions. He also testified in favor of the city awarding a contract to two other suspects. The other two men were among 10 people arrested last year in a federal drug sting.

The commission on which Carter serves deals with planning and construction for projects mostly in the Ohio River city's downtown, including the $127 million Ford Center arena.
