Three men charged in drug-trafficking conspiracy
KANSAS CITY - Three men were charged on Thursday for being involved in a drug-trafficking conspiracy after federal agents seized 14 kilograms of meth.
Jose Alvarado, Victor Gomez-Rendon and Enrique Antonio Herrera-Saucedo were charged in a criminal complaint filed in the Kansas City U.S. District Court.
The complaint claims the three men took part in a conspiracy to distribute meth from Aug. 15 through Dec 4.
An affidavit filed in support of the complaint said Alvarado met with an undercover agent on seven different occasions and sold approximately 925 grams of meth and 30 firearms. Alvarado also agreed to sell even more meth and firearms. He said his supplier would be able to obtain 10 kilograms or more of meth.
On Thursday, Alvarado and the agent met at a residence in the 2600 block of Cypress Avenue in Kansas City. Gomez-Rendon and Herrera-Saucedo came to the residence with 14 kilograms of meth.
This case is ongoing. A federal jury has yet to hear evidence.
