Lexington -

  Federal agents make a large scale drug bust in Oklahoma and New Mexico that reaches into a Mexican drug cartel.

  The U.S. Department of Justice says some of the drug money was being laundered through a horse farm in Lexington, about 35 miles south of Oklahoma City.

  14 people were arrested there and in a raid in New Mexico.

  Agents say the suspects are part of the "Los Zetas"...  a powerful drug cartel in Mexico which generates millions of dollars in drug sales.

  Authorities say the illegal money was used to buy, train and race American Quarter Horses.

  Agents say the ranch in Lexington was being used to hide the operation.
