Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara has a lot of fans, and a recent drug cartel investigation revealed a few more.

Back in February, the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration seized watches, diamond jewelry, vehicles, firearms, along with Scarface memorabilia and a signed nude photograph of Ms. Vergara. The items were gathered from a number of seizers done at homes and used-car lots in the El Paso, Texas area.

Today, the family of defendant Alejandro Melendez is asking for some of the items back, saying that they were purchased before any of the alleged criminal activity.

Melendez has been allegedly linked to the Sinaloa drug cartel, which is one of Mexico’s largest and most dangerous drug traffickers. Melendez denies any association and has plead not guilty to drug conspiracy charges.

According to tax records, a used-car lot is in Melendez’s name and all the vehicles were removed. Also on the list of seized items were rings belonging to his wife that she says are hers that she had for years.

Jessica Daniela Melendez asked for the rings back saying they were hers “for over 12 years and [were] bought and paid for before the defendant’s illegal conduct.”
