SPOKANE — Hector Vicente Briseno-Medina, the man arrested when police discovered an estimated $1.5 million worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin in a Wenatchee residence, faces 20 years to life if convicted on two federal charges.
The 31-year-old man was arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Spokane, charged with possessing both 500 gras or more of meth and one kilogram or more of cocaine, both for the purpose of sale.
Previously convicted of immigration violations, Briseno-Medina is subject to at least 20 years imprisonment if found guilty on the methamphetamine charge alone.
Yakima attorney George P. Trejo Jr. will represent Briseno-Medina. No trial date has yet been set.
