Federal authorities busted a massive methamphetamine ring in Dallas recently, and an Oak Cliff used car dealership is at the center of the accusations.

Authorities arrested eight suspects with links to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in Mexico. They are accused of manufacturing meth and other drugs in labs in Dallas and Desoto and selling them out of Hampton Motors on South Hampton at Brandon Street.

A witness told the FBI that 22-year-old Ivan Gonzalez had been selling marijuana, cocaine and meth from the dealership, which he owns, according to federal indictments unsealed this week.
