A Mexican national living in Brownsville pleaded guilty to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute nearly 20 pounds of cocaine.

Maria Venegas Vda. De Trevino, 60, and her three daughters were arrested June 18 when she attempted to smuggle $1 million worth of cocaine through the B&M International Bridge.

U.S. Attorney Don DeGabrielle said Trevino-Venegas, a resident immigrant from Mexico, admitted to hiding drugs on her body.

During a secondary inspection agents said the woman and her daughters tried to run back across the bridge into Mexico, but were arrested before they reached the mid-point.

Aside from the nearly 20 pounds of cocaine Trevino-Venegas had strapped to her body, agents said they discovered another 17 pounds of narcotics in the 2006 Mercedes ML350 being driven by one of the sisters.

Laura Trevino, 31, Adriana Trevino, 23, and Evelia Trevino, 27, are all accused of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine. Evelia and Adriana Trevino are also charged with possessing with intent to distribute cocaine.

The three sisters will go on trial next month. Their mother is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals and will be sentenced Jan. 12, 2009. She faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years to life in prison as well as a $4 million fine.

Absolutely no surprises here, JDubsMom . . .

Once the lovely Maria de Trevino has snubbed her nose at our Immigration Laws and our Border Authorities, the rest of her lawbreaking activities were a "piece of cake"! Only Low IQ Idiots would expect otherwise.

Hopefully, the expensive Mercedes will be or has been SEIZED and the entire Gaggle of Goons will receive serious slammer time.
