Authorities have identified two men arrested during a DEA raid in Cameron Park on Wednesday afternoon.
Both Armando Arambul and Richardo Vega appeared before U.S. Magistrate Court Judge Dorina Ramos in McAllen on Thursday.
Judge Ramos denied bond for the two men until their Tuesday morning arraignment and bond hearing.
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents arrested the two in a raid coordinated with other agencies in Cameron Park.
A federal indictment unsealed on Thursday afternoon reveals that the two are accused in a cocaine trafficking case.
According to the indictment, the two men moved large amounts of cocaine going as far back as January 2004.
Federal prosecutors are seeking the forfeiture of $5 million dollars in cash and five properties in Cameron Park.
