The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of a man with Utah ties who is suspected of drug trafficking.
The man, Noel Romero Herrera, is wanted for his alleged involvement in a drug organization that operated in Montana from approximately 2007 to approximately September 2010.
Authorities have been looking for Herrera for years. A warrant for his arrest was issued Feb. 17, 2011, in Montana on federal charges of conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and distribution of cocaine and aiding and abetting.
The 35-year-old — who also is known as “Joker” — has previously lived in Murray, Midvale, Sandy and Salt Lake City, according to the FBI.
