Two people are accused of funneling more than $141,000 received from methamphetamine sales in Lincoln in a laundering scheme, according to a federal indictment.
In a January indictment unsealed last week, Sergio Valencia and Marisela Pescador were charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to money-launder and conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of meth.
Valencia and Pescador are accused in a funneling scheme where drug couriers bringing methamphetamine to Lincoln were told to deposit the proceeds in various Wells Fargo bank accounts, the indictment states.
Once the deposits were made, the couriers contacted Valencia and Pescador, who withdrew the cash in California.
The indictment also alleges the pair contacted the couriers and others who had access to the accounts and retrieved cash from those people in California.
