LAKELAND, Fla. — Months of wire taps, surveillance stakeouts and the most ingenious detective methods possible have paid off with the dissolution of a narcotics ring with ties to deadly Mexican drug cartels, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Wednesday.

The Sheriff's Office announced its arrests of 21 suspects, along with the confiscation of more than 150 pounds of cocaine and nearly pure methamphetamine, 15 vehicles and $533,450 in cash.
