Leonard Garcia claims he no longer is facing federal drug charges

l_332ec1c9e59f58ac2e67e66f0a3822e4.jpg WEC featherweight fighter Leonard Garcia is claiming through his MySpace account that federal drug charges that were brought against him earlier this year have been dropped. According to Garcia, he is still facing state charges.

Garcia was one of thirteen people that had been arrested earlier this year in association with with an El Paso, Texas cocaine ring that allegedly was operation from El Paso to Hub City. The reported arrests came after the close of a four-year investigation by law enforcement officials.

According to a report by KCBD News Channel 11 in Lubbock, Texas that came shortly after the arrests were made in March, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office claimed that the operation seized about two kilograms of cocaine along with drug trafficking paraphernalia, firearms and money.

Garcia has maintained his innocence the entire time and insists that he’s been found guilty through association.

It must be noted that after several searches of the web, there are still no local news reports that can be found to verify Garcia’s claim of the federal charges being dropped. A concentrated search of KCBD News’ website has no followups from their original piece.

Five Ounces of Pain intends to attempt to contact federal authorities after the holiday in order to try and verify Garcia’s claim.
