Albuquerque man is arraigned for drug trafficking, firearms

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Days after getting a 16-year prison sentence for the road rage killing of a 4-year-old girl, an Albuquerque man has been arraigned in federal court on an indictment for drug trafficking and firearms charges.

Prosecutors say 33-year-old Tony Derrick Torrez waived a detention hearing Wednesday and will remain in custody pending trial on the indictment, which has yet to be scheduled.

A federal investigation into Torrez began last October when Albuquerque police received a tip about a suspect in the road rage incident.

Police and federal drug agents executed search warrants at Torrez’s residence and on two of his vehicles.

They reported finding marijuana packaged for distribution, two assault rifles, ammunition, a bullet proof vest, a small amount of suspected cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
