Man Accused in Large Meth Ring Ordered Held without Bond
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man accused of distributing large quantities of methamphetamine in Fargo and in Sisseton, South Dakota, is being held without bond.
Roble Hernandez is charged in federal court with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. He has waived his right to a detention hearing.
Authorities say Hernandez's residence was being used as a "stash house" for an out-of-state drug trafficking organization. A woman who lived with Hernandez had allegedly stolen five pounds of meth and members of the cartel came to Fargo and assaulted her to gain information about the missing drugs.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Alice Senechal says she may reconsider Hernandez's bond at a later date "if additional facts are available." Trial has not been scheduled.
A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
