Federal agents raided the Oklahoma ranch and a prominent quarter horse track in New Mexico on Tuesday, alleging the brother of a high-ranking official in a Mexican drug cartel used a horse-breeding operation to launder money. Unlike most drug busts, the backbone of sophisticated money laundering cases is a complicated trail of paper _ reams of bank, tax and property records _ that usually take years to track. But hitting organized crime where it hurts the most _ the money flow _ is the most effective way to shut the crime networks down, investigators say. (AP Photo/Brett Deering, File)
