Two men from Osaka, Japan who were arrested earlier this month at LAX airport for smuggling live turtles into the United States, were just indicted by a grand jury in Los Angeles. The arrests were tied to an undercover investigation–code named Operation Flying Turtle–that began about a year ago. As part of that, in July 2010, agents infiltrated the operation and purchased 10 protected turtles and tortoises from a person allegedly linked to the two men who were just indicted.
