EL CENTRO, CALIFORNIA –   Today, Jose Guadalupe Aviles-Cordero, 60, was arraigned by Magistrate Judge Ruth Bermudez Montenegro on charges of importing 1,309 pounds of methamphetamine, 9.37 pounds of heroin, and 2.64 pounds of cocaine.  Aviles-Cordero was arrested at the Calexico East Commercial Port of Entry on December 5, 2018.

According to court records, Aviles-Cordero, a Mexican citizen living in Mexicali, Baja California, was the driver of a tractor pulling an empty trailer as it approached the cargo facility.  U.S. Custom Border & Protection (“CBP”) officers found anomalies in the roof area of the trailer.  Upon further inspection of the roof area, CBP officers discovered 90 packages of methamphetamine with a weight of 1,309 pounds, multiple packages of heroin with a weight of 9.37 pounds, and multiple packages of cocaine with a weight of 2.64 pounds.

At defendant’s initial appearance, the United States requested detention based on risk of flight.  The detention hearing is scheduled for December 11, 2018 at 10:00 am before Judge Montenegro.  His preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 20, 2018 at 1:30 pm before Judge Montenegro.

CBP officers at the border crossings in Southern California routinely stop illegal activity while processing millions of legitimate travelers into the United States.  Those statistics can be found here: CBP-enforcement-statistics.
