Guadalupe Ceniceros, 45, was given 20 years in the state Department of Corrections, with 10 years suspended, on each of the three counts: conspiracy to commit the felony of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine) in March of this year; distribution of a controlled substance (marijuana), also in March of this year; and distribution of a controlled substance (cocaine) in October 2004. The sentences are to run concurrently.
Guadalupe’s brother, Daniel Ceniceros, 31, pleaded guilty Nov. 28 to the conspiracy charge and was sentenced to 10 years in the DOC, with all but five years suspended.
Guadalupe Ceniceros was arrested on a warrant March 10 along with Rudy Eugene Garcia, 27, of Olustee, and Brandi Sue King, 29, of 215 Fifth St. in Snyder.
The three were nabbed in a sweep when lawmen executed five search warrants at properties that Guadalupe Ceniceros either owned or was renting at 1129 Cherry, 702 S. Julian, 706 S. Julian, 416 S. Jackson and 513 W. Cypress.
The arrests were the result of a joint investigation by the District III Drug Task Force; District VI Drug Task Force; Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics; Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation; and the Hardeman County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department.
According to affidavits filed in District Court, law enforcement agents in September, working with two confidential informants in Quanah and Altus, purchased methamphetamine from Guadalupe and Danny, who lived in Quanah.
Garcia, according to an affidavit, sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant from Guadalupe Ceniceros’ 702 S. Julian address on Feb. 25.
Terry Ramirez, 28, of 702 S. Julian, was jailed on an arrest warrant March 30 in connection with the sweep and charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance (marijuana and cocaine) within 2,000 feet of a park, maintaining a dwelling for keeping and selling a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Ramirez was living with her daughter at the Julian Street address and sometimes stayed with her boyfriend, Guadalupe Ceniceros, at 1129 Cherry.
Danny Ceniceros, who was picked up Oct. 11 by the Childress County, Texas, Sheriff’s Department and brought to Jackson County to face the conspiracy drug charge, also faces a charge in Childress County of unlawful possession of a firearm, and two Hardeman County, Texas, charges — possession of a controlled dangerous substance and failure to pay child support.
Another Ceniceros brother, Benny, 42, pleaded guilty Sept. 6 to a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon and a charge of possession of a firearm after conviction or during probation. He was sentenced to 10 years in the DOC on the assault charge and five years on the firearm charge, to run concurrently, with five years suspended.
Guadalupe Ceniceros’ prior convictions are recorded as an aggravated assault charge in April 1981, for which he was sentenced to three years; June 1991, delivery of marijuana, five years; June 1991, possession of marijuana, five years; June 1991, DUI, five years; and November 2000, DUI, five years.
