Three years after a Moore County man allegedly sold an ounce of cocaine to an FBI informant, an FBI task force officer filed a criminal complaint against him in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

The officer filed the complaint against Jesus Treviño on Nov. 7, 2015, stating Treviño sold an ounce of cocaine, valued at $1,200, to the informant at Reyes Auto Sales in Cactus on Nov. 8, 2012. The complaint alleges that when the informant arrived to make the transaction, Treviño called another man who delivered the cocaine to the car lot, and the exchange was made.

The court documents show an FBI agent arrested Treviño in Fort Stockton on Nov. 9, 2015, and his initial court appearance in the court’s Midland/Odessa Division was on Nov. 10. Officials on that date also filed a motion to detain Treviño without bond, alleging he is a flight risk and “will obstruct or attempt to obstruct justice, or threaten, injure, or intimidate or attempt to threaten, injure, or intimidate a prospective witness or juror.” A U.S. magistrate judge on Nov. 19 ordered Treviño held without bond, pending further order.

Treviño is charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and aiding and abetting. On Nov. 7, 2015, the FBI task force officer also filed a complaint against Guadalupe Reyes who is charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 100 kilograms or more of marijuana.

The court documents don’t show if Treviño has been extradited to a holding facility in the Northern Division, and calls to his court-appointed attorney weren’t immediately returned.
