Gang infiltrated; four arrested

A “gang” of four Richmond/Rosenberg area residents were arrested after an investigation linked them to smuggled cell phones.

Several months ago an inmate in the Fort Bend County jail was caught with a cell phone inside the jail facility. That discovery prompted an investigation by jail personnel which led to an investigation by the narcotics agents. According to Terriann Carlson, the sheriff’s spokesperson, a four month covert operation revealed that some local Richmond/Rosenberg residents were smuggling cell phones into the jail.

Carlson said, “Task Force agents were able to infiltrate the organization and gather evidence that identified the persons responsible for purchasing the cellular phone, the preparation and packaging of the cellular phones and the persons responsible for smuggling the cellular phone into the Detention Facility.” Once the investigations were complete, the evidence was submitted to the District Attorney’s office and presented to the Grand Jury. Indictments were returned.

Justin and Toni Trevino, both 19, and both Richmond residents, were indicted and arrested for Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity as well as Samantha Alaniz, 21, and Christopher Camacho, 28, both of residents of Rosenberg.

Carlson said the charges were a felony. Their bonds ranged from $250,000 for Comacho to $15,000 for Alaniz. Both of the Trevino’s bonds were set at $30,000 each. The “gang” was arrested at their respective homes by the Fugitive Warrants Division.
