asa-dojFRESNO— On Friday, November 13, 2015,  a federal grand jury returned indictments against six Tulare County residents, charging them with drug and firearms offenses.

A 20-count indictment charges:

  • Rudolfo Delgadillo, 35, of Woodlake;
  • Alejandro Zavala, 22, of Cutler;
  • and Fabian Magana, 24, of Orosi,

with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and various other drug trafficking and firearms offenses.

A separate eight-count indictment charges:

  • Josh Soto, 34, of Salinas Valley Prison;
  • Desarae Granillo, 22, of Visalia
  • and Salina Granillo, 24, of Visalia,

with conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Investigating the case were the:

  • California Department of Justice Special Operations Unit
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation,
  • United States Postal Inspector Service,
  • Tulare County Sheriff’s Office,
  • Tulare Police Department,
  • Visalia Police Department,
  • Tulare Area Regional Gang Enforcement Team (TARGET),
  •  California Highway Patrol (CHP).

On November 13th, four of the indicted (Delgadillo, Zavala, Soto, and Granillo) remained in custody, while Magana and Granillo were ordered released.

If convicted, Delgadillo, Zavala, and Magana face a maximum sentence of life in prison. If convicted, Soto faces a maximum penalty of 80 years in prison, Granillo faces a maximum penalty of 220 years in prison, and Salina Granillo faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison.

"While not a lot of details have been released regarding this case, the indictment is an indication of the investigations  California Department of Justice special agents conduct with their federal and local brothers and sisters in law enforcement," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  "The Central Valley is a hub for methamphetamine use and drug trafficking, putting a stop to its distribution, and the firearms possession associated with it, will help to make communities safer."
