4th Pot Money Laundering Suspect Surrenders

DENVER (AP) – The final suspect wanted in connection with an alleged money laundering marijuana scheme in Colorado has surrendered.

U.S. Attorney spokesman Jeff Dorschner said that Gerardo Uribe turned himself in Wednesday.

The surrender came on the same day that federal agents raided a Denver medical marijuana dispensary and other buildings connected with Uribe and three other suspects – Uribe’s brother, Luis, Denver attorney David Furtado and Hector Diaz.

Federal prosecutors announced Monday that they were indicted for allegedly wiring and laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars from Colombia to buy a Denver grow house.
