Twin Cities-area Mexican restaurant chain hid a vast drug conspiracy, federal prosecutors charge

 


A Twin Cities area restaurateur used his three suburban Mexican cantinas as fronts for a vast, six-year drug operation that trafficked marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine, according to a federal grand jury indictment unsealed this week.

Aldo Escoto, the former owner of El Parian restaurants in Eagan, Long Lake and Lake­ville, also staffed his restaurants with undocumented immigrant workers willing to work long hours for multiple days at a time at locations that concealed drugs and illegal proceeds, according to court documents.

Escoto, 38, of Eagan, is still at large.
