The Drug Enforcement Administration's Carl Pike and his team arrested more than 1,000 people connected with a powerful Mexican drug cartel. The Project Coronado Team seized $32 million in cash, plus one and a half tons of methamphetamine. Pike's team is a finalist in the Justice and Law Enforcement Sammies category. He joins the Federal Drive to discuss the take down.
