California pair charged with smuggling drugs to 5 states

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Federal authorities say a Northern California pair repeatedly impersonated federal law enforcement officers as part of a nationwide scheme in which they smuggled drugs nationwide.

A federal grand jury in Sacramento on Thursday indicted Quinten Moody and Myra Minks. They’re accused of shipping marijuana from California to Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada and Texas.

Investigators said Minks repeatedly posed as various federal agents in attempts to learn about or disrupt the investigation, including as a DEA agent.

Minks is being sought and officials do not know if she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf. Moody’s attorney said his client maintains his innocence.
