Why it’s so hard to break an opioid addiction
A federal grand jury Thursday indicted Fresnans Edilberto Vidrio, 53, and Elena Castillo, 46, on charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.
The charges were filed after Fresno police and officers from the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office seized approximately 30 pounds of methamphetamine, a pound of cocaine, and 1.8 pounds of heroin packaged for sale in their apartment. The discovery was made while officers were serving a warrant, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
If convicted, Vidrio and Castillo face a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison and a $10 million fine.
