D.C. police and federal officials have arrested eight men that they say have ties to Mexico's La Familia drug cartel. Police say the eight suspects were seeking to set up operations in the Washington area.

Authorities seized millions of dollars worth of methamphetamine as part of their investigation.

Undercover officers and agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested the men on federal conspiracy charges last week, and officials are expected to make a formal announcement Wednesday.

Police executed search warrants in three states and arrested the men Friday in raids that resulted in the seizure of several pounds of crystal meth and dozens of gallons of liquid meth. Police say they also recovered six pounds of marijuana, three guns and more than $15,000 in cash.
