LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Federal officials have arrested six people and charged them with hauling 4,890 pounds of marijuana to Kentucky for packaging and sale.
In an affidavit unsealed Friday, Drug Enforcement Administration Brian Bester said agents followed the six men using wiretaps and tracking GPS data through Kentucky and Indiana.
The six were arrested, after agents found close to five thousand pounds of marijuana in a warehouse near Preston Highway and Fern Valley Road in Louisville, according to the U.S. Attorney's office. They're accused of hauling the drugs to Kentucky for packaging and sale.
Drug Enforcement Administration agents followed the six men, using wiretaps and tracking GPS data through Kentucky and Indiana.
Police say the men were working as part of a drug trafficking organization, and had packaged the marijuana in produce containers for cabbage and onions, to help mask the odor of the drug.
Arrested were Osvaldo Saldivar Avila, Ricardo Saldivar Avila, Jose Alfredo Zavala, Jose Antonio Mora Pizarro, Rafael Garcia Garcia and Raimundo Ramirez.
All six face charges of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of 1000 kilograms or more of marijuana. They appeared in federal court in Louisville Friday and were lodged in the Oldham County Jail in La Grange, Ky., according to the jail's website.
Court records did not list attorneys for the men.
