Authorities allege that since May 2017, these defendants were responsible for the distribution of large amounts of methamphetamine throughout the Waco and Central Texas areas.

In addition to the arrests, these investigations have resulted in the seizure of approximately $16,000 in U.S. Currency, over five pounds of methamphetamine and 22 firearms.

All of the defendants remain in federal custody pending detention hearings expected to occur next week before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manske in Waco.

The DEA, FBI, U.S. Marshals Service, Texas Department of Public Safety, Waco Police Department, Killeen Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office investigated these cases.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mark Frazier, Christopher Blanton and Stephanie Smith-Burris are prosecuting these cases on behalf of the Government.

The principal mission of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering operations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.

It is important to note that an indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt.  The defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
