Five indicted for bringing multi-kilo shipments of heroin, cocaine and marijuana to Toledo area from California and Mexico

Five men were named in an 11-count indictment, accused of conspiring to bring heroin, cocaine and marijuana to the Toledo area from Mexico and California, said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cleveland Office.

Indicted are: Jesus Reyes, 27, of Los Angeles; Jose Leal Jr., 27, of Los Angeles; Edgar Campos, 26, of San Fernando, Calif.; Rigoberto Luna Luna, 48, of Mexico, and Eric Dodd, 25, of Oregon, Ohio.

Reyes, Leal, Campos and Luna obtained the drugs in California and Mexico and distributed the heroi, cocaine and marijuana to members of the Alejandro Garcia organization, a narcotics operation that operated in Northwest Ohio. This took place beginning in 2010, according to the indictment.

Reyes, Leal, Campos and Luna facilitated the transportation of kilogram-quantities of heroin, cocaine and marijuana to the Toledo area by utilizing semi-truck deliveries, parcel delivery services and couriers, including Dodd, according to the indictment.

Dodd assisted in the distribution of narcotics to mid-level and lower-level drug dealers in the Toledo area, according to the indictment.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Freeman following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Toledo Police Department and the Metro Drug Task Force.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
