Drug Trafficking Operation Busted in Midland

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Several Midlander's have pleaded guilty to drug trafficking.

The investigation started back in December and lead to quite a big bust of drugs, firearms and money.

Sanjo Nunez, 27, Rosalinda Rosales, 28, Joel Sanchez, 29, and Brian Nikolai, 55, were caught.

Detectives went undercover and that's how they tracked down the suspects and discovered they were involved in a drug distribution network. They were able to seize 11 pounds of meth, 300 grams of cocaine, three pounds of marijuana, nine firearms and $6,334.

Back in late April, Nunez was the first to get caught. Then in early June, Rosales and Sachez were busted. Nikolai was already behind bars.

Rosales was the only one given a bond. She got out and was then arrested again.

Last week, all four defendants pleaded guilty to felony drug charges.

The case is now in the hands of the U.S. Attorneys Office.

Sentencing is set for late October.
