Two Men Charged With Mailing Coke to Bronx With One Detained As Other Released on Bond

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 26 – Abraham Cano and Welynton Garcia de la Cruz are charged with conspiracy to send dozens of kilograms of cocaine from Puerto Rico into the United States, including to an address on White Plains Road in The Bronx.  

On August 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman held back to back presentments of the two co-defendants. Inner City Press covered it.   

Both had retained counsel. Cano's lawyer said he consented to detention without prejudice to a later application for release. Mr Cano was let off the call.  

Then his co-defendants was offered a bail package by the US Attorney's Office: $50,000 bond co-signed by two financial responsible persons and electronic monitoring.    

Assistant US Attorney Benjamin Schrier explained the insistence on GPS, mentioning up to 60 kilos of cocaine.

He did not say if his Office would have offered the same conditions of release to Cano and if not, why not.

The case is US v. Garcia de la Cruz et al., 20-mj-9068 (Freeman).
