LOS ANGELES (UPI) -- Federal agents said Saturday six people have been arrested for allegedly being involved in an armed methamphetamine trafficking ring. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) officials said the raid Friday netted five firearms, five kilograms of methamphetamine and $10,000 in cash at four locations, and closed an operational drug factory. Special agent George Rodriguez said a confidential informant alerted agents that the ring was using firearms during drug deals when they purchased large quantities of methamphetamines. Those arrested included Maximo Montevardi, Juan Ayon Ayon, Jose Contreras and Teodore Sumabat of Los Angeles; Juan Alceves of Cudahy, and Jose Luis Del Valle, of Huntington Park. They were being held without bail in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles and were expected to appear for a bail review hearing Monday in U.S. District Court. If convicted, they could face minimum mandatory sentences of between 10 and 15 years in federal prison. ============================================== Another file from The Soapbox BBS "Your Infotainment Specialist" An all text BBS dedicated to e-zines and other unique text files.
