Mexican Citizens Face Federal Drug Charges

Three people, all of them Mexican citizens, have been named in a federal indictment for allegedly distributing around 60 pounds of Methamphetamine and 3 pounds of Heroin in Tehama County. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Maria Cervantes-Echevarria and Marta Lopez used their Los Molinos home as a stash location for drugs, guns and cash, while Miguel Cervantes served as the delivery man. He allegedly sold more than 3 pounds of Meth to an undercover agent with Tehama Interagency Drug Enforcement during three buys in August and September. Another 22 pounds was reportedly delivered inside a spare tire in January. After the final meeting with the agent at the Red Bluff McDonald’s on September 17th, a search warrant was then served at a home in Los Molinos, where agents reported finding an additional 34 pounds of Meth, 3 pounds of Heroin, three handguns, an AR-15 rifle and $44,000. Each defendant faces as much as 10 years to life in federal prison.
