(AP) – Federal drug enforcement officials say they’ve seized millions of dollars from Mexican cartel members operating in Atlanta.

Authorities say some of that money will go to help Georgia law enforcement agencies.

Drug Enforcement Agency Special Agent Rodney Benson says Operation Four Horsemen resulted in the seizure of $23.8 million and more than 500 kilograms of cocaine.

Benson says 23 cartel members have been arrested, including two brothers accused of running drugs along the East Coast.

Authorities say $8 million will be divided among agencies that provided key help in the investigation – the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia Department of Public Safety, Lawrenceville Police Department, Henry County Sheriff’s Office and the Troup County Sheriff’s Office.
