Brothers Plead Guilty to Bringing Meth into Oregon, Washington

A California man joins his brother in pleading guilty, for bringing a huge meth operation into both Oregon and Washington. 

33 year old Noel Murillo pleaded guilty for his role in a conspiracy to bring drugs from California, to sell them in Northeast Oregon and Southeast Washington.

Investigators say starting in 2017, Murillo brought large quantities of meth to deliver to his brother Abel in Klamath Falls. 

Court documents say Abel made trips to Medford, and distributed the drugs in Umatilla and Morrow Counties.

In one bust, investigators seized dozens of packages of meth hidden in the false bottom of a propane tank, and more than 29 firearms.

A judge will sentence Noel Murillo in January.  His brother Abel is serving a more than 19 year prison sentence, after also pleading guilty.
