Man Convicted in Hennepin County of Playing Major Role in Interstate Drug Ring

| No Comments

In just one hour a Hennepin County jury convicted a man of playing a major role in an interstate methamphetamine ring, Friday.

Pedro Ayala-Leyva, 37, also known as Peli, was found guilty of first-degree drug-trafficking conspiracy for the ring which ran from the Twin Cities to California.

"He is the last of 11 major defendants to be convicted following the eight-month investigation by St. Paul police, the FBI and other agencies," the Star Tribune said.

Ayala-Leyva was not immediately arrested when the ring was busted 10 months ago, but after a search through the home he shared with two other suspected drug dealers revealed papers investigators believed to be "drug notes", he was charged with drug-trafficking conspiracy according to a March Pioneer Press report.

Ayala-Leyva's hearing is scheduled for Nov. 29.
