A Tucson man was sentenced to 18.5 years for his involvement in a $2.8 million drug and money laundering scheme.

According to the Attorney General's Office, between 2011 and 2015, Carlos David Nogales Sr. operated a nationwide money laundering organization that employed more than a dozen people to launder the proceeds from marijuana that had been shipped from Arizona to various east coast cities.

In April 2018, a jury found Nogales Sr. guilty of 35 felony counts including fraud, forgery, money laundering, controlling a criminal enterprise, and possession of marijuana.
