Taxi driver found guilty in drug conspiracy in Greenville

Posted: Updated:
GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A taxi driver was found guilty on Wednesday of using his taxi to transport large amounts of cocaine from Atlanta, according to the U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles.

The two day trial in Greenville led to the conviction of Nestor Guerra-Telon, 27, of Norcross, GA, for conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute in excess of 500 grams of cocaine.

Nettles said that evidence presented that Guerra-Telon worked for an Atlanta-based cocaine supplier and he would use his taxi to transport large amounts of cocaine for them.

Guerra-Telon would hide cocaine in televisions while transporting it to Greenville and then sell it for between $5,000 and $7,000, the solicitor said. He would then transport the cash back to Atlanta hidden in the television, Nettles said.

On June 6, six people were arrested in connection with the operation, including Guerra-Telon.

The supplier from Atlanta and the customer in Greenville were also arrested in connection with the conspiracy, Nettles said.

Guerra-Telon has not been sentenced at this time.
