FBI busts international drug trafficking ring operating out of LA

The FBI arrested several people Wednesday in a bust of what officials called a "transnational organized drug trafficking group" operating out of Los Angeles.

SkyFOX was over the scene of one of the locations around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, at a home in the 2700 block of New Avenue in Rosemead. Images from above the home showed multiple unmarked cars, and more than a dozen people sitting in the driveway, listening to a Homeland Security officer. 

The FBI released the identifies of the suspect – listed below – as well as a picture of a doll allegedly stuffed with drugs:

  • Yangqiang Chen, 45, of Monterey Park
  • Jie Chen, 40, of Rosemead
  • Mei-Mei Chen, 41, of Rosemead
  • Guorong He, 50, of Rosemead
  • Yien He, 32, of Rosemead

The FBI confirmed to FOX 11 that the home was one of several locations throughout the LA area where multiple people were arrested in connection with an international drug trafficking group, but didn't offer specific details. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
