Montgomery County sheriff's deputies said 40-year-old Elena Ducoing has been arrested after a six-month investigation. Ducoing is a first-grade teacher at Greenleaf Elementary School in the Splendora Independent School District. Investigators said they seized several computers, 10 pounds of marijuana, 3 grams of cocaine, a money-counting machine, $2,300 in cash and other items used to package and transport money and drugs. Detectives said Ducoing's husband, Roberto Munoz, has strong ties to one of Mexico's most notorious drug cartels, Los Zetas/Gulf Cartel. He was arrested in September 2008. Members of the Los Zetas/Gulf Cartel are believed to be responsible for numerous murders, kidnappings and other violent crimes in Mexico and in the United States.
