Almanza Mexican Food restaurant on Grand Avenue in Laramie serves drive-thru customers on Tuesday.

Almanza’s Mexican Food on Grand Avenue is implicated as being part of a years-long money laundering scheme for a Mexican drug cartel.

In 2018, federal prosecutors began asset forfeiture proceedings against 17 bank accounts, including several that are partially controlled by Jose Luis Almanza-Sanchez, who’s listed in Wyoming Secretary of State records as the owner of Almanza’s.
