Several Orange County residents, including a Tustin attorney, are among 12 people indicted in the alleged smuggling of at least 26 tons of marijuana to the West Coast from Southeast Asia, U.S. Atty. Robert C. Bonner announced Thursday. Federal agents said the ring transported the drug in several shiploads between 1984 and 1987, usually transferring their illicit cargo to smaller vessels before landing in San Francisco. The 30-count indictment, which also alleges several conspiracies to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and violate federal tax laws, was unsealed late Wednesday after the arrests of five of the defendants.
