Nine individuals charged in drug ring

May 14, 2012

DEA, FBI and panhandle law enforcement agencies assisted in a drug bust that occurred at several homes and businesses around the area on Thursday, May 10, 2012.
Nine citizens from Dumas and Borger were charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance after a investigation conducted from June 2010-May 2012.
A 20-page criminal complaint and application for search warrant requested by FBI special agent Geoffrey M. McGuire, filed on May 3, 2012, describes details of several encounters between the defendents Carlos Martin Gonzales, Jose Elias Orozco, Carlos Carrasco, Cosme Chavez, Sergio Ruben Ramirez, Victor Manuel Chavez, Jr., Juan Eli Svenningsen, Datra Chevalier Johnson, and Olen Clyde Cargill in the of selling drugs and firearms to undercover police officers and confidential police sources.
According to the complaint, at the beginning of the investigation an unnamed FBI source told Dumas police officer Lieutenant Flood that Chavez of Dumas wanted to sell three guns for $250.
Chavez is being held at a Childress jail and Cargill is in federal custody. Seven of the defendants are in custody at the Randall County Jail.
On May 5, 2011, an unnamed FBI source revealed Ramirez was a major source of cocaine in Dumas and supplied it to the Chavez family. The unnamed source also revealed information received from Cosme Chavez, brother of Victor Chavez Sr., that Victor was providing between four and seven ounces of cocaine per week to “ a guy named Junior,” which is believed to be Jose Fernandez of Borger.
On Dec. 15, 2011, the unnamed FBI source met Carrasco at 910 Nelson in Borger and purchased one ounce of cocaine.
FBI/DEA surveillance units observed Carrasco walking across the street to another residence, identified as 911 Nelson, then return a short time later.
Carrasco then returned to the unnamed FBI source and provided a clear plastic bag containing cocaine, said the complaint.
The final drug buy in the complaint occurred inside a Dumas home on April 27.
Prosecutors have 30 days to present the case to a grand jury.

To anybody that thinks Frank and Amy are good people you either support the habit,do the habit, or love the money and I hope you go down to LOL. If you think Frank and Amy are good people you are a follower in life low life trash, Charles Manson was probably a good guy to his followers also. There is no grey area between black and white. It is what it is.

P.S. I need a screwdriver to peel you off the bottom of my shoe!!

Really people, you all are just like a bunch of hungry animals just waiting for a piece of meat to be thrown to you all. People, are you all really this stupid? So now everytime there's a drug bust you all are going to try to associate Frank and Amy with it right??? It's funny how you people are so consumed by Frank and Amy when you all need to be worrying about your own lives. Where do you people come off saying that Frank and Amy snitched, you all must not know how to read, it clearly says that these people were being investigated since 2010 and they used a confidential source wearing recording devices to catch these guys. But of course that's not what you all want to hear so you people begin to add to the story and make it to what you people wished it was. Sorry to tell you all but Frank and Amy had NOTHING to do with it, get it thru your thick heads. And as for Advanced Flooring, I really don't think that you people posting rude comments on here will hurt there feelings if you all don't buy anything from them. So don't bother trying to bring them down, they have alot of loyal customers that will keep buying from them.

Okay...

Did you not read the article? It mentions that they were supplying cocaine to who they believe to be Junior Fernandez... how is that having nothing to do with Frank and Amy?

Are you one of the same people that claimed Frank & Amy were innocent of the charges a few months back? Sure is strange how those people stopped saying that after Frank & Amy had to plea guilty.
How in the world do you know if Frank had anything to do with these arrests? You don't have any idea what the FBI or any other law enforcement organization is doing behind the scenes. Neither does anyone else, but that doesn't mean people can't comment about it.
It's obvious that you don't like the fact that folks are getting on this site and talking about those scum-bucket drug dealing friends of yours. But for you to tell them to shut up and to say how ignorant everyone is, says an awful lot about you.
It will be nice when this all goes away some day. Just like it's nice that Fernandez family isn't around our city anymore.

Advanced Flooring is owned by one of the guys who used to work at Frank's.

But who really cares, at least the slime who is dealing the drugs in our area is being taken off the street one by one. It is really pitiful that the Borger PD has once again been left out of the investigations and the busts that have taken place. Hopefully they are being investigated for their one-sided views and corrupt behavior.

Frank and Amy had nothing to do with the bust

What makes anyone think that Frank and Amy had anything to do with these busts? It would be nice if they did, but it is obvious this investigation was done concurrent to theirs. Frank and Amy got the deals they did because of the huge amount of property they surrendered relative to the charges. As long as these idiot distributors remain such easy targets, the DEA, FBI, and other state and regional agencies will continue to investigate our community. The fact that Hutchinson county law enforcement has turned a blind eye to our community's problems for various reasons has given these outside agencies reason not to trust local law enforcement. There have in the past been rumors of federal investigations that seemed to originate from our departments. There is no wonder they are not trusted.

As a side note. Where was the Borger Police Dept. when this bust was taking place? Isn't this the second time they did not know about a drug bust in thier own town? Sound like some miss management to me. Maybe someone needs to take the trash out in that dept. I hope some of the new city council does something about the how the police dept. is ran. I know some good officers have quit because of the management of this dept.

GET THE POPCORN!!!!!!!
