Seven Arrested for Running Heroin Distribution Conspiracy

JUN 08 (DALLAS) - Seven north Texas residents remain in federal custody following their arrests last week on federal charges outlined in a just-unsealed indictment that alleges various offenses related to their roles in a heroin distribution conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

The arrests were made last Thursday by special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration with assistance from officers with the Garland, Allen, and Rockwall Police Departments.  The defendants made their initial appearances in federal court on Friday and detention hearings are being held this week.

Each of the below-listed defendants is charged with one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute heroin:

Brittany Anders, 31, of Rowlett
Sixto Rivera Bustillos, 43, of Garland
Jancs Fraire, aka “Jesus Luis Friar,” “Jesus Fraire,” and “Jay,” of Dallas
Rene Rodriguez, 30, of Dallas
Yovani Loyd Rodriguez, 22, of Dallas
Daniel Rojo, 31, of Allen
Marcus Stokes, 30, of Plano

Anders and Rojo are also each charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.  Anders is also charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.

Bustillos is also charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.

Fraire is also charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin and one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin and distribution of heroin.

Rodriguez is also charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin and two counts of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.

Stokes is also charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin.

A federal indictment is an accusation by a federal grand jury, and a defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless proven guilty.  However, if convicted, the conspiracy count carries a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years; the firearm count carries a minimum penalty of five years and a maximum statutory penalty of life; the heroin distribution counts each carry a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years; and the methamphetamine distribution counts carry a mandatory minimum penalty of five years and a maximum statutory penalty of 40 years.  Fines could range from $250,000 to $4,000,000.  The indictment also includes a forfeiture allegation that would require the defendants, upon conviction, to forfeit a business on Corinth Street in Dallas and various firearms.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanna Etessam.
