BEAUMONT, Texas – A 25-year-old Beaumont, Texas man appeared in federal court on firearms and drug trafficking charges in the Eastern District of Texas announced U.S. Attorney Joseph D. Brown today.

                 

James Anthony Madrid had an initial appearance today pursuant to a criminal complaint issued by the U.S. District Court charging him with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and using a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.

 

According to information presented in court, on Jan. 24, 2019, local and federal agents responded to the 8700 block of Newfield Lane in Beaumont, Texas, in connection with a shooting.  Officers discovered Madrid’s one-year-old child and girlfriend had been shot. An investigation revealed Madrid had shot the girlfriend and child as individuals attempted to break into the house in connection with Madrid’s drug trafficking activities.  A search of the home revealed approximately 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, evidence of drug distribution and several firearms. 

 

If convicted, Madrid faces up to Life in federal prison.

 

This case is being investigated by the Beaumont Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell James.

 

It is important to note that a complaint, arrest, or indictment should not be considered as evidence of guilt and that all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
