Last week, a federal grand jury in Tucson returned indictments against Bryan Israel Moreno-Aguilar, 23, Alfredo Daniel Mireles, 29, Glen Adam Romero, Jr., 40, and Ana Lizeth Romero, 39, charging them each with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Fentanyl. All four individuals are from Tucson, Arizona.

The indictments allege that from a time unknown and continuing until January 7, 2022, Moreno-Aguilar, Mireles, Glen Romero, and Ana Romero knowingly conspired with each other and with others to possess with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of a mixture containing fentanyl.

The previously filed complaints alleged that the four charged individuals conspired with each other and others to distribute counterfeit M30 pills containing fentanyl. According to the complaints, the group used Mireles’ residence, the Romeros’ residence, and the Romeros’ recreational vehicle to store counterfeit M30 pills. On October 15, 2021, a vehicle leaving Mireles’ residence was stopped and found to contain approximately 8,000 counterfeit M30 pills that contained fentanyl. On December 11, 2021, the Romeros’ recreational vehicle was at a business in Tucson and the Romeros were seen counting and distributing pills to an individual who was later stopped and found to possess approximately 100 counterfeit M30 pills that contained fentanyl.
