A local Dallas cell head who worked with the Santa Rosa Lima Drug Cartel and other Mexico-based drug trafficking organizations was sentenced Wednesday to more than 16 years in federal prison.

Carlos Espinoza Juarez, a 33-year-old Mexican national, pleaded guilty in July 2020 to money laundering and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin. He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade. According to plea papers, Mr. Juarez admitted he conspired to traffic drugs.

On Feb. 8, 2015, he admitted, he directed codefendant Heriberto Talamantes-Ceballos to deliver approximately one ounce of heroin to a buyer in exchange for $880.00; about a month later, on March 12, he directed codefendant Edwin Contreras-Diaz to deliver approximately three ounces of heroin to a buyer in exchange for $2640.00. Both men did so. The defendant also admitted to sending approximately three kilograms of heroin to Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Mr. Juarez further admitted to orchestrating a series of other drug deliveries, spanning from Texas to South Carolina, over the course of at least four years. He also admitted to using fake names to wire money to recipients in Guanajuato, Mexico, in an effort to launder the proceeds of his illegal drug dealing.

As part of his plea deal, Mr. Juarez agreed to forfeit more than $35,000, six firearms, and two vehicles, including a Chevy Tahoe and a GMC Sierra. A foreign citizen in the U.S. illegally, he will face deportation proceedings after serving his sentence.

Seven additional defendants have been convicted in this case:

Edwin Contreras-Diaz, aka “Flaco” – pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin
Heriberto Talamantes-Ceballos – pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin
Marcos Fernando Valle – pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine
Adrian Lopez Olalde – pleaded guilty to money laundering and was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison
Omar Suarez-Garcia – pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin
Bianca Jeannette Martinez – pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin
John Paul Sanchez – pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin

The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Dallas Field Division and the Texas Department of Public Safety conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Grand Prairie Police Department, Grapevine Police Department, Lancaster Police Department, Dallas Police Department, Haltom City Police Department, the DEA’s Boston Field Division, the 24th Judicial District Drug, and Violent Crime Drug Task Force, Decatur County, TN, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, the Will County Sheriff’s Office, Peotone, IL., the Illinois State Police, Columbia Police Department, Columbia, South Carolina, and IRS - Criminal Investigations. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney George Leal.

The case stemmed from an Organized Crime Drug Task Force (OCDETF) investigation led by the North Texas OCEDTF Strike Force. The OCDETF program was established in 1982 in order to attack and reduce the supply of illegal drugs entering the United States and to diminish violence and other criminal activity associated with the drug trade. The OCDETF program works with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to identify, disrupt, and dismantle drug traffickers and drug trafficking networks.

  1. Ahi t谩, eso se sacan por andar ahi de calientes...
    I guess a little of the heroin was supplied by some of the cuicos themselves and a little was stolen by some other cuicos from evidence, but the bulk of the cuicos are happy to have work to show to prove their wages was not all thrown in the toilet, at over 100.00 dollars an hour each, the war on drugs costs more than the recent wars on the middle east, but whaddafack, fleecing the US IS job #1...
    At that rate, the US is better served if the cuicos sold the drug trafficking thselves, like the "Gamblin' Industry" that was a crime ran by criminals once upon a time or the Teamsters Union now owned by the thin blue liners to fleece their "employers at city hall" and get impunity for their brotherly racist murdering.

  2. Excellent 馃憤 more going to prison, say hello to Bubba and SIR the Nalga masussue.

  3. Who knew Marro had a heroin pipeline all the way to New England

    1. Not "HIS" pipeline, burros just do their shit in their corral, like el Chapo, or the beltranuses who had not been in the USA for dozens of years...
      El Mayo Zambada has not been back in Las Vegas since he was cuban drug trafficker Alberto Sicilia Falcon's brother in law and chauffeur, wonder if El Rey Zambada covered second shift and if javier Sicilia Falcon is family with Alberto, javier had his son kidnapped and murdered by the Garcia Luna gangster teams.

    2. Oyy nomas. The narco expert in action speaks again. Classes for 9 year olds

    3. 1:08 a g没ebo!
      I must lower my high standards for lowly PhDs like you, when you upgrade your game we can go into the esoterics of history and drug trafficking

    4. 12:09 Teach me about delusions or mental illnesses instead. You know nothing

    5. 2:37 orrrait miss Kinsey's what's your beef with being sore ass?

  4. Marros people selling ounces lmfao. And 2 kis at a time. Haha
    Yet the idiots will say Marro still controls GTO with his CSRL
    Dudes have no more money like that. Marro himself may have saved himself a pretty penny, may have helped his family and vlose friends obtain wealth and businesses but they were never huge drug dealers. You barely started hwaring about crystal sales after about a year or two of that brutal war. That shit aint cheap and the war drained him of a big portion of his wealth and profits. Plus they were fprced to shut down a big portion of their gas theft opertions because cjng bought the new govenor and the gto plaza and financed the govt op. golpe de Timon and paid the govt force commanders to clean house for them.
    That war was an interesting one because it was practically all urban combat as gto has very little rural citiesvand ranchitos and more towns, Barrios, cities and alot more modern roads and highways instead of brechas like the state of Michoacan where alot of the righting takes place in Brechas and Ranches far from big cities. Gto is modernized compared to such
    They used alot of modern tech, had alot of proffessional looking militarized operations lik when they attacked villagran policr station and police vehicles and kidnapped those 4 police and lawyer completely uniformed, in cloned police trucks and all of them blindadas. All simultaneously around the city well organized and well planned
    That war will forever be one of the bloodiest and longest. Mafro had old zeta schooling not original member ovviously but hes been around for a while and he himself was a zeta around 2009 before the split from CDG.

    1. Today I did my oil change the maintenance light came on, I used Pennzoil 10w40. I also had to change the oil filter.

    2. If it was before the split then he was CDG trchnically

  5. 8:20 the most important job was to change your pamper...
    One week is long enough, even if the garrantee still good
