Noel Cuellar, 37, pleaded guilty in January to one count of distribution and possession with intent to distribute meth. He was indicted in November of 2017 and has been in custody since that time.

According to court documents, in May of 2015, agents searched a home in Amarillo. Court documents say they found around nine pounds of meth and $10,000 in United States currency in a pickup outside the house. 

During an investigation, police learned that Cuellar had previously distributed meth to the owner of the house. He admitted to distributing pounds of meth to be distributed throughout the Amarillo area.
