With Drugs In Car Trap Former Coke Driver Reyes Says He Was Trapped And Is Released

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 6 – Martin Reyes is accused of selling more than a kilogram of heroin out of a hidden trap in his car. On February 5, Assistant US Attorney Juliana N. Murray said Reyes is not eligible for the safety valve and should be detained. 

  Reyes' Federal Defender Ariel Werner countered that Reyes has worked, as a truck driver for Coke, and that he was an "easy mark" for the government's witnesses.   

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn said she could see conditions for release, and decided on a bond of $75,000. It was signed on February 6, just as the underlying complaint was put in PACER. 

   The complaint, by DEA Special Agent Corey Howard, recounts how on January 30 CS-1 saw in Reyes' car "a hidden compartment located in the center console... in which Trap Reyes had concealed what appeared to be package narcotics."

 A second encounter, with CS-2 on February 4, resulted in arrest and a search of the trap.  The case is US v. Reyes, 20-mj01315 (Netburn).
