MINNEAPOLIS - A California man and six Minnesotans have been indicted in connection to the trafficking of cocaine and marijuana into Minnesota from California and Arizona via FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said Thursday that 33-year-old Anthony Curtis Harris of San Diego – with help from Kevin Brown, Toussaint Starks, Lopez Walters, Simon Mason, Donald Williams and Darion Estis - committed the crimes between December 2012 and April 2, 2015.

Harris is accused of making multiple trips from Minnesota to San Diego and Phoenix to obtain drugs and arrange their shipment to Minnesota. The other defendants allegedly sent, received and distributed drugs, or laundered money on Harris’ behalf. The charges say hundreds of packages were shipped containing the illegal drugs. Money deposited in accounts linked to Harris totaled more than $1.2 million, said the indictment.

Harris faces charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The other defendants face one to two felony drug or money laundering charges. The men are from St. Paul and various suburbs in the Twin Cities.
