Two men were arrested and charged with possessing and intending to distribute cocaine Tuesday after a federal investigation that included six raids across Central Indiana.
Juan Carmona and Yoel Herrera face charges in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.
Both were arrested after a search by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents at Carmona's home in the 13000 block of Fleetwood Drive in Carmel. Authorities say the agents found 8 kilograms of suspected cocaine and an undetermined amount of money hidden in two cars parked in the driveway.
Similar raids conducted inside and outside the United States may be discussed at a news conference today in Atlanta, DEA officials said. The U.S. attorney general and an acting administrator from the Italian National Police will attend, DEA officials in Washington said.
In Tuesday's Hamilton County raid, DEA agents with search warrants found Carmona and Herrera at the Carmel address. Herrera had flown to Indianapolis from Massachusetts on a one-way ticket and was staying with Carmona, according to an affidavit filed by investigators.
Agents located the cocaine in a hidden rear compartment of an Audi A6, which Herrera said he had driven Monday. At the time of the arrest, he had the car's keys.
The money was hidden in a Volvo S80, which was reported stolen in Boston. Both vehicles were registered to Carmona at his business address, J&P Auto Sales, 4505 W. Washington St. in Indianapolis.
Five other raids were conducted across Central Indiana on Tuesday in connection with the investigation, including one at J&P Auto, said Tim Morrison, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Indiana. Indianapolis metropolitan and State Police also took part in the raids.
Morrison said no other suspects have been arrested as a result of the raids but said additional arrests were possible.
Carmona and Herrera's detention hearing will be Tuesday.
