Federal Judge, Deny bail to the brother of the leader of Los Zetas, the Z-40

Jose Trevino Moralesfue arrested and charged last June 12 for participating along with 13 others in a conspiracy for money laundering

A federal judge in Austin, Texas, today denied bail to Joseph Treviño Morales, brother of the alleged cartel leader of Los Zetas, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, the “Z-40”.

Trevino’s attorney, Douglas Gardner, said Judge Mark Lane, the Court Western District of Texas, denied the request for bail following a hearing on Tuesday, but did not specify the reasons.

Trevino was arrested and charged on June 12 to participate along with 13 others in a conspiracy to launder some of the profits obtained by the Los Zetas drug trafficking through the sale and horse racing competition.

According to U.S. authorities, Trevino managed the money laundering activities of Los Zetas in the U.S., posing as “legitimate” owner of quarter mile racehorses.

In the indictment, authorities state that “his activities included the coordination of purchasing, training and racing” horses.

Trevino and his wife Zulema, two companies created Tremor Zule Enterprises and Farms, with the purpose of promoting the activities of money laundering, according to the indictment.

Jose Trevino and Zulema were arrested last June 12 at the ranch of his own “Zule Farms” on the outskirts of Lexington, Oklahoma, where they had sophisticated stables for breeding and care of horses.

Last Thursday, Judge Lane agreed to release Zulema Trevino on bail of $ 25,000.

Of the 14 defendants in the money laundering conspiracy, nine have been arrested and the other five remain fugitives, including the alleged leader of Los Zetas, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales and his brother Oscar Omar Trevino Morales.

Of the nine arrested, three have been released on bail, including Zulema Trevino.
