MARSHALL, Texas — Three individuals have been arrested on drug and firearms charges in the Eastern District of Texas, according to U.S. Attorney Joseph D. Brown.

 A federal grand jury returned the 15-count indictment on Feb. 19, charging Danny Brian Hernandez, 27, Ronald Charles Parker, 31, and Armando Ivan De La Torre, 24, all of Marshall, with being involved in a conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine in the area.

 According to court documents, the men have been charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, 13 counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and one count of carrying a firearm during a drug offense.  

Hernandez, Parker, and De La Torre were arrested Tuesday in Marshall.  If convicted, the defendants face up to life in federal prison.
