Four Lubbock area residents were arrested on federal warrants for their alleged roles in a meth wring.
Under one indictment, Florentino “Tino” Corrales, 37-year-old from Levelland, Texas, Johnny Lee Kendrick, also known as "rabbit", 44, and Myndi Marie Jewell, 33, both from Lubbock.
The three were charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.
If convicted each faces a penalty of up to life in prison and fines in the millions of dollars.
In the same case, Danny “Nerd” Bautista, 41-year-old, was charged with "conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five grams or more, but less than 50 grams of meth.”
If convicted, Bautista faces up to 40 years in prison and fines in the millions.
The defendants made their initial appearances in U.S. Federal Court in Lubbock earlier this week and most will have detention hearings on Monday morning.
