BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A mother and three daughters are
scheduled to be arraigned next week following their indictments in
connection with a more than $1 million cocaine smuggling case.
The suspects are 59-year-old Maria Venegas Viuda de Trevino
(treh-VEEN'-yoh) and her daughters -- 31-year-old Laura Trevino,
27-year-old Evelia Trevino and 23-year-old Adrianna Trevino. They
were indicted on Tuesday by a federal grand jury on eight counts of
possession with intent to distribute cocaine and bring it from
Mexico.
Laura Trevino, the driver of the vehicle, was charged on all
eight counts. Authorities said she confessed to spearheading the
smuggling operation.
The Brownsville Herald reports all four women were named on two
of the eight counts -- one for possession with intent to distribute
more than two pounds of cocaine and the other for conspiring with
others to bring more than two pounds of the drug into the United
States.
Officials said the cocaine had street value of more than $1.16
million.
