  • Kena Marie Flores-Ramirez, 31
  • Nina Marie Maabrey, 36
Mugshots were not available for all the defendants at the time this story was written.
The federal indictment alleges Miguel and Kena Flores-Ramirez, Guerra-Duarte, Davis and Maabrey distributed 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in Boone County and elsewhere from September 2013 to May 23, 2014.
The indictment also alleges Miguel and Kena Flores-Ramirez, Guerra-Duarte and Wiyrick trafficked 100 kilograms or more of marijuana in Boone County and elsewhere from September 2013 to March 2014.

Miguel Flores-Ramirez and Guerra-Duarte are also accused of dispensing 50 grams or more of cocaine in Boone County and elsewhere from January 2010 to June 14, 2014.

It also alleges Miguel Flores-Ramirez and Davis trafficked marijuana in Boone County and elsewhere, beginning on an unknown date and continuing until June 3, 2014.
In addition to the drug-trafficking conspiracies, various defendants are charged in eight counts of possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute, two counts of possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and 25 counts of using a telephone to facilitate a drug-trafficking conspiracy.
