Carlos Olivas, also known as “Chuco,” 38, of Kansas City, John B. Carr, also known as “Brandon,” 24, of Galt, Mo., and his mother, Onis R. Eads, also known as Onis Regina Jones, 45, of Humphreys, Mo., were charged in a 15-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

The federal indictment alleges that Olivas, Carr and Eads participated in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine from April 2012 to Feb. 11, 2013.

In addition to the conspiracy, Olivas is charged with one count of possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, two counts of possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and two counts of being an unlawful user of methamphetamine, cocaine and crack cocaine while in possession of firearms. Olivas was allegedly in possession of a Smith & Wesson .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol, a Springfield Armory .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol, a Taurus 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a Ruger 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a Tanfoglio .22-caliber revolver, a Rohm .38-caliber revolver, and an Iver Johnson .38-caliber revolver on Jan. 25, 2013.

Olivas was allegedly in possession of a Gwinn Firearms Bushmaster 5.56mm pistol and a Noble .22-caliber pump-action rifle with no serial number on Sept. 18, 2012. Olivas was allegedly in possession of a .380-caliber pistol in December 2012.

In addition to the conspiracy, Carr is charged with one count of possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime, one count of possessing firearms after being convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence and one count of being an unlawful user of methamphetamine while possessing firearms. Carr was allegedly in possession of a Hi-Point Firearms .45-caliber pistol and a Calwestco .22-caliber pistol between Jan. 23 and Feb. 8, 2013. Carr was allegedly in possession of an Izhmash 12-gauge shotgun, a Hi-Point Firearms .45-caliber pistol and a Calwestco .22-caliber pistol on Feb. 8, 2013.

In addition to the conspiracy, Eads is charged with one count of possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, one count of distributing methamphetamine, two counts of being an unlawful user of methamphetamine and marijuana while in possession of firearms and two counts of being a fugitive from justice while in possession of firearms. Eads was allegedly in possession of a Winchester 30-06 caliber rifle on May 31, 2013. Eads was allegedly in possession of a Springfield Armory .40-caliber pistol on Jan. 8, 2013.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rudolph R. Rhodes, IV. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Trenton, Mo., Police Department.
