An undercover operation led to the arrest of two sheriff's deputies. According to a Justice Department statement the two men, R.S. and V.C., were employed by the sheriff's office at the time of the bust. Investigators were looking into a drug trafficking operation and discovered that R.S. and V.C. were involved. The deputies allegedly used a patrol car to hide over 20 pounds of cocaine. The plan was to bring the drugs from southern Texas to a location further north. Federal agents brought evidence to the county sheriff that the two deputies worked under that showed that V.C. and R.S. had been part of a drug smuggling operation. The sheriff then dismissed the two men. R.S. was taken into custody and a warrant has been issued for the arrest of the other man. They have been indicted on federal conspiracy charges for drug trafficking. Don't hesitate to speak with a drug crime attorney if you have been investigated for or charged with a federal drug crime.

Federal Drug Crime Penalties are Serious

Punishment for a federal drug crime conviction can be extremely harsh and can ruin your life. The exact penalties sentenced can vary depending on what drug was involved and in what amount among other factors. Cocaine is a Schedule II drug and a federal drug crime such as drug conspiracy, trafficking, sales, distribution, etc. involving this drug can mean years in a federal prison. Sentencing may also call for thousands in fines, forfeiture of assets, mandatory drug counseling and more.
