SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. -

A Sierra vista couple pleaded guilty to money laundering and transporting marijuana for almost 12 years, Attorney General Tom Horne announced Friday.

Husband and wife duo Juan Manuel Alvarado-Fajardo and Neriah Kidebar Morin-Alvarado admitted to conducting drug transactions and then laundering the proceeds into properties in Sierra Vista and multiple vehicles.

When authorities conducted a search warrant in October 2012, they say they found $98,600 in cash hidden in a safety deposit box at a local bank and $35,000 in their savings account.

The plea agreement requires the Alvarado's to forfeit eight of the vehicles, 10 of the properties, and all of the cash that was seized by investigators.

According to the Attorney General's office, the couple conducted illegal activities between January 2000 and October 2012.

The Alvarado's will be sentenced on September 12. They face a minimum term of probation or a maximum of 8.75 years in prison.

Eight branches of law enforcement on state and federal levels worked together to break the case.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
