Ind. official accused of laundering drug money

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Indiana official is accused of laundering drug money for a Mexican drug cartel.

Evansville Redevelopment Commissioner John "Jay" Carter was just indicted.

He's accused of helping drug smugglers push illegal funds through real estate transfers, business deals and financial transactions.

He also testified in favor of the city awarding a contract to two other suspects.

They were among 10 people arrested last year in a federal drug sting.

Investigators say the cartel smuggled marijuana from Mexico to Indiana.
