Grand jury indicts 10 in drug ring bust

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A grand jury on Thursday indicted 10 people for various alleged roles in trafficking multiple drugs.

Charges range from possession of marijuana to conspiracy to trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine. One suspect, Calvin Eugene Robert, of Atlanta, is also charged with possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. According to indictments, Robert was convicted in Cobb County in 2001 for distributing marijuana.

Also indicted were Dustin Blake Lancaster, Eliazar Escobedo Jr., Enrique Jaimes-Jaimes, Juvenal Diaz-Vazquez, Maria Martinez, Miguel Lopez, Oliver Isaola, Pedro Aviles-Pineda and Raymond Maurice Murray.

All suspects are being held in the Gwinnett County Jail without bond, except Diaz-Vazquez, who jail records show is not in custody here.

Federal immigration holds have been placed on Jaimes-Jaimes, Martinez, Lopez and Aviles-Pineda, according to records.

According to indictments, the suspects, over a period of several months prior to their September and October arrests, imported drugs into Georgia and possessed, stored, distributed and transferred money in furtherance of their drug trafficking.
