For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Texas

DALLAS — Edgar Fallad-Martinez, 29, of Dallas, was sentenced today before Chief U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn for his role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Fallad-Martinez was sentenced to 168 months in federal prison. Fallad-Martinez pleaded guilty in August 2016 to one count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Fallad-Martinez and eighteen co-defendants were charged in a 12-count indictment charging each defendant with one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine. All but three of the defendants are also charged with one substantive count of either distribution of methamphetamine or possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Two defendants are charged with a firearms offense.

Thirteen of the eighteen defendants have been sentenced. The remaining five defendants will be sentenced in early June.

The investigation into this drug trafficking organization, which operated out of the Pleasant Grove, Seagoville and Balch Springs areas of the DFW metroplex, began in early January 2016. During the investigation, law enforcement has seized more than 6,700 grams of methamphetamine, approximately 13.2 kilograms of methamphetamine oil, 62 grams of marijuana, 2.5 grams of heroin, and 20 ml of gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), as well as 12 firearms and $12,379 in cash.


The Department of Public Safety and the Dallas Police Department investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Wirmani prosecuted.
