Richmond Police Sgt. Bisa French announced Tuesday that after a yearlong investigation, federal agents and local police arrested Francisco, Jose and Casimiro Cruz on suspicion of drug trafficking charges last week.

Authorities also arrested Jaun Alcazar of Oakland and Edwin Garcia of Los Angeles

During the arrests, French says agents and officers seized more than 20 pounds of cocaine hidden in a car parked in a Richmond neighborhood.
