Cocaine dealing admitted; bust led to drug ring's fall

Pedro Salud Rubio-Garcia

A man charged in a large-scale drug trafficking ring pleaded guilty this week to his role in dealing cocaine.

The 2011 arrest of Pedro Salud Rubio-Garcia was the beginning of the ring's unraveling.

Rubio-Garcia pleaded guilty this week in U.S. District Court to conspiracy to distribute cocaine, dealing cocaine, the selling of a firearm to a convicted felon and aiding in dealing cocaine. No sentencing date has been set.

Now 27, Rubio-Garcia was arrested in Angola and began sharing information about the drug ring with police.

A federal investigation code named "Operation Breakfast Club" ensued, netting 18 arrests and indictments of 20 people.
