Man indicted for trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine from house in Toledo

A Toledo man was indicted for trafficking large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine.

Rudy Torres, 40, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute controlled substances and one count of maintaining drug-involved premises.

Torres conspired with others to distribute at least five kilograms of cocaine and 500 grams of methamphetamine. He also used a residence on Upton Avenue in Toledo as part of his drug trafficking, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Alissa M. Sterling.           

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
