Men Charged With Importing Cocaine Into the US Pled Guilty Now Another Detained in SDNY

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – Alex Santiago Rodriguez Tapia and others have been indicted for attempting to produce cocaine in Colombia and Ecuador and bring it into the US.

  On July 11 they appeared before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods. Inner City Press was there.   

The initial complaint has photos, including of bundled up cocaine with an Eiffel Tower logo on it.

   Judge Woods told the defendants if they wanted to change lawyers - and he wasn't suggesting that they should - they better do it early. He set a trial date of February 27, 2024. 

On October 24, 2023, Juan Carlos Lopez Lasa pled guilty, with sentencing on February 12, 2024. Two days later, Jose Walter Hernandez Lozano pled guilty. On October 27, Alex Santiago Rodriguez Tapia pleaded guilty.

With the case seemingly over, on November 9 another defendant in it was arrested and detained on consent: Daniel Elias Rosado Rendon. Judge Woods will see him on November 16.

 The case is US v. Rodriguez Tapia, et al., 22-cr-532 (Woods)
