KANSAS CITY — Two people have pleaded guilty in federal court in Kansas City to a drug-distribution conspiracy that prosecutors allege could have involved more than $10 million worth of cocaine.
Twenty-nine-year-old Felipe Garcia-Lopez, also known as Eduardo Zazueta, and 27-year-old Humberto Saucedo-Lobatos entered the pleas Tuesday. Both men are citizens of Mexico living in Kansas City.
As part of the plea, both men also agreed to forfeit to the government more than $150,000 that was seized by law enforcement officers.
Under federal statutes, Garcia-Lopez and Saucedo-Lobatos face a sentence ranging from 10 years in prison without parole to life in prison without parole. They also face a fine of up to $4 million. No sentencing hearing has been scheduled.
