Abstract: 
On April 29, Attorney General Thornburgh announced criminal indictments in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta against major alleged drug kingpins and two branches of a Colombia bank.  The indictments resulted from an operation known as "Operation Polar Cap," an in-depth federal investigation into an alleged billion-dollar money-laundering ring with links to the Colombian Medellin cartel.
