Default Leonard Garcia Faces Distribution and Possession Charges

Leonard Garcia Faces Distribution and Possession Charges -
by Dann Stupp [mmajunkie] on Mar 28, 2008 at 1:10 pm in - News -

WEC fighter Leonard Garcia, who was arrested earlier this week for his alleged involvement in a major cocaine trafficking ring in Texas, has been charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine and other substantive counts, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

News of the bust was first reported by KCBD NewsChannel 11 in Lubbock, Texas (see our initial report).

Garcia was arrested Tuesday evening in Lubbock and remains in custody. He and the rest of the defendants are scheduled to appear in federal court today at 3 p.m. CT.

Garcia was one of 13 individuals targeted for charges stemming from five federal indictments. The alleged drug-trafficking ring operated from El Paso to Lubbock, according to law-enforcement officials.

The execution of seven search warrants this week netted nearly two kilograms of cocaine, drug trafficking paraphernalia, firearms, U.S. currency, financial records and vehicles, according to the the U.S. Department of Justice.

The bust was was part of a four-year major, multi-agency investigation that included the Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the U.S. Marshals Service; Immigration and Customs Enforcement; the Texas Department of Public Safety; the Lubbock Police Department; the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office; the Tahoka Police Department; and the Lynn County Sheriff's Office.

Garcia, a Ring of Fire vet, made his UFC debut as a lightweight in April 2007. After three fights in the organization, he dropped to featherweight and joined the UFC's sister promotion, the WEC, where he earned a 91-second TKO of Hiroyuki Takaya in February. The victory pushed his career MMA record to 11-3.

WEC officials have made no formal statement regarding Garcia's arrest. (MMA blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps - contacted the organization for comment and is awaiting a response.
