In the criminal complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Amarillo Division), Fernandez allegedly structured, attempted to structure, and attempted to assist in structuring currency transactions with one or more domestic financial institutions, by purchasing 39 cashier's checks with United States currency in amounts of $3,000 or less.

Throughout the past few weeks, special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have arrested nine individuals in the Amarillo area on various felony drug charges in recently unsealed federal criminal complaints, according to U.S. Attorney Sarah R. SaldaĂ±a of the Northern District of Texas.
On Thursday afternoon, defendants Jose â€śJuniorâ€ť Fernandez, 36; Aaron Fernandez, 26; and Thomas Joseph Salazar, 23, appeared before Magistrate Judge Clinton E. Averitte and were ordered to be detained pending further court proceedings.
Tomorrow night, the 3A â€śKing of the Texas Panhandleâ€ť will be determined when the Borger Bulldogs travel north to take on the Dalhart Golden Wolves in a big District 1-3A showdown.
Both the Bulldogs and Wolves are coming off impressive district opener wins, setting the stage for what should ultimately decide who will win the District 1-3A title.
The Bulldogs looked impressive last week in their 31-6 win over the Pampa Harvesters.
Tomorrow night the Sanford-Fritch Eagles will host the Spearman Lynx in their regular season finale in Fritch.
