Trial Set for Man Involved in Biggest Drug Bust in KVE History

A trial date is set for one of two El Paso, Texas men indicted on charges of conspiracy, aiding and abetting and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

Francisco De La Cruz-Navarro and Humberto Contrerras-Carrasco are facing federal drug charges, after officers seized more than 100 pounds of cocaine from their truck. Authorities said the coke is worth more than $1.5 million.

Carrasco, the owner of the truck, is in custody. His trial is set for June 5, 2007. Navarro, the driver, was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.

The men were stopped for speeding on I-65 by a Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officer March 29, 2007.
