Javier Gonzalez and Jamil Roman of Massachusetts face cocaine and heroin distribution charges in a conspiracy that used vehicles to transport large quantities of drugs and cash between Texas and western Massachusetts.
The feds accuse Gonzalez of using tractor trailers associated with his business–JGL Truck Sales–to drive to Texas to grab kilos of cocaine and heroin from a Mexican plug. Gonzalez allegedly equipped his vehicles with stash spots to hide drugs and cash, on several trips, multiple times over a span of years. Upon his return to Massachusetts, Ramon allegedly pitched everything off for him.
The affidavit alleges that Gonzalez used a tractor trailer associated with his business — JGL Truck Sales — to drive to Texas, to pick up 50-60 kilograms of cocaine for distribution in Massachusetts. Gonzalez also allegedly smuggled heroin, according to the affidavit.
An informant cooperating with the government who was the target of a January raid told investigators Gonzalez has been making trips to Texas to deliver cash and return with drugs every three months for the past seven to eight years. The witness also told investigators Gonzalez loaded vehicles equipped with hidden compartments onto his tractor trailer for the journeys.
According to court documents, around this time in 2014, Gonzalez was pulled over while driving a JGL Truck Sales tractor trailer south. A search uncovered $1.17 million in cash found hidden in the cab. On the same day, $350,000 was seized from Ramon’s residence. They were formally charged last week.
