(Minneapolis, MN) -- Four suspects charged in the largest meth bust in state history are facing multiple drug trafficking violations in federal court.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Minnesota says 33-year-old Fernando Ramos Meza, 34-year-old Peter Martin, 46-year-old Javier Lopez all of Minneapolis, and 23-year-old Juan Valdez Mendoza of Kansas were indicted Thursday. A search of a north Minneapolis home by the Cannon River Drug Task Force resulted in the seizure of nearly 191 pounds of methamphetamine, more than an ounce of tar heroin, a sawed-off shotgun and cash. The meth has an estimated street value of seven-point-seven-million dollars. The charges include conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute meth.
