3 SD Men Charged With Distributing Meth

HILL CITY, S.D. (AP) — Three Hill City men face federal charges for allegedly selling thousands of dollars of worth of methamphetamine to an undercover officer at a Sioux Falls Walmart.

The Rapid City Journal reports that 33-year-old Hugo Arechiga-Torres, 19-year-old Tomas Torres and 48-year-old Francisco Escobar-Tinjero have all pleaded not guilty to a federal indictment accusing them of conspiring to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine. A fourth man is still being sought.

According to court documents, Hugo Arechiga-Torres allegedly made a deal for one-half pound of methamphetamine with a member of the MinnesotaBureau of Criminal Apprehension after meeting him on March 31. Other law enforcement officers watched the sale and recorded the transaction.

The men were arrested shortly after the sale.

    Say……Hill CIty…..how is that whole “diversity” thing working for you? Just keep the borders open…..its too violent in Mexico….so the Mexican Mafia is bringing their “A” game to the United States…..Recent arrests in St Paul with the Mexican Mafia and Hmong gangs are just the start…….

      You always say the truth. Myself I am sick of diversity.

    Who do you think is consuming all this Meth in Hill City? Would it be okay to have these thugs if they had a different ethnic background??

  • LBJ

    The bill for their incarceration should be sent to the Democratic Party. They love these people and want to import more. Worship at the Altar of Diversity. The liberals’ god.

  • Tommy Solo

    I vote for a Singapore type law for dealing with thugs that deal these hardcore drugs!!
