SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
-v.-

DECLARATION

EFRAIN ANTONIO CAMPO FLORES and


FRANQUI FRANCISCO FLORES DEFREITAS,

S2 15 Cr. 765 (PAC)

Defendants.

I, SANDALIO GONZALEZ III, pursuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section
17 46, declare under penalty of perjury:
1.

Since in or about 2000, I have been a Special Agent in the United States

Drug Enforcement Administration ("DEA").

I am currently assigned to the DEA's Special

Operations Division, which is based in Chantilly, Virginia.


2.

Beginning in or about May 2015 , a cooperating witness ("CW-1 ") who

was charged with a narcotics offense in the Southern District of New York, but not in DEA
custody, began to provide information and assistance to the DEA in an effort to obtain a
cooperation agreement and, ultimately, leniency at sentencing.
3.

Based on conversations with other DEA agents and others, as well as my

review of reports prepared by law enforcement, I know that:


a.

Prior to the onset of CW-1 ' s attempted cooperation, he was a

Honduras-based drug trafficker.


b.

During CW-1 ' s attempted cooperation, he was confined to a

wheelchair as a result of a previous accident.

c.

The DEA did not provide CW-1 with recording equipment during

his attempted cooperation.


4.

On or about October 3, 2015, CW-1 informed me that a Honduran national

had put CW-1 in touch with two Venezuelans who were interested in participating in a cocainetrafficking venture. CW-1 indicated that he was to meet with the two Venezuelans in Honduras
within approximately 24 hours.
5.

Due to the short notice that CW-1 provided regarding the anticipated

meeting, the fact that CW-1 informed me that the meeting would be conducted far from the
DEA's office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and CW-1 's limited mobility, I was unable to make
arrangements to provide CW-1 with a recording device, and I did not authorize or direct any
other individual to record the meeting.
6.

CW-1 indicated that he would attempt to record the meeting usmg a

cellular telephone. Following the meeting, however, CW-1 informed me that he did not record
the meeting.
7.

Attached as Exhibit A is a photograph that CW-1 sent to me in or about

October 2015, which appears to depict a meeting between CW-1 , the defendants, and other
individuals whom I do not recognize. CW-1 did not provide me with any other photographs or
recordings relating to his first meeting with the defendants.
8.

On or about December 4, 2015 , I was informed that CW-1 had been

9.

Based on my personal knowledge, conversations with DEA agents, and

review of law enforcement databases, it is my understanding that none of the other individuals
who attended the meeting depicted in Exhibit A were acting at the direction of United States law
enforcement.
I declare under penalty of perjury that, to the best of my knowledge, the
foregoing information is true and correct.
