McALLEN, Texas - A 40-year-old Mission man has been charged with importing oxycodone into the United States from Mexico, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

Jose Luis Guerra Jr., was originally charged by criminal complaint June 7, 2019, after being apprehended as he attempted to cross the border from Mexico at the Progreso Port of Entry. Today, a federal grand jury returned the four-count indictment charging him with conspiracy, importing and possessing with intent to distribute Oxycodone. He is expected to appear for his arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ormsby July 11, 2019.

 

Guerra allegedly attempted to enter the United States at the Progreso Port of Entry June 7, 2019, by foot. The complaint alleges he had numerous cookie boxes in his possession. Authorities searched the boxes and located approximately 3,000 oxycodone pills, totaling approximately 612 grams.

 

If convicted, Guerra faces up to 20 years prison and a possible $1 million maximum fine.

 

Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation with assistance from Customs and Border Protection. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Steven Belt and Michael Mitchell are prosecuting the case.

 

An indictment or criminal complaint is a formal accusation of criminal conduct, not evidence.

A defendant is presumed innocent unless convicted through due process of law.

I wish they would label Jose Luis Guerra Jr as a mission man, but rather a Mexican native
