SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio man was sentenced last week to 25 years in prison for his role in distributing methamphetamine and heroin in the San Antonio area.

According to court documents, Donald Trevino, aka Fluffy, D, Uno, and Gordo, 34, was the “free world” General of the Texas Mexican Mafia (TMM).  The TMM is a prison and street gang that engages in significant illegal activities, including narcotics trafficking and extortion.  In October 2020, Trevino and 11 other codefendants were arrested on charges in connection with a methamphetamine/heroin/cocaine trafficking operation in the San Antonio area.  During the investigation, authorities seized dozens of kilograms of methamphetamine and numerous firearms.

On March 30, 2022, Trevino pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine.

In addition to his prison sentence, Trevino was ordered to forfeit more than $10,000. Trevino has remained in federal custody since his arrest on October 2, 2020.

“This investigation demonstrates our office's commitment to dismantling criminal organizations in our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff.  “This defendant was responsible for the distribution of large quantities of methamphetamine and heroin in San Antonio. We are thankful for the outstanding collaboration of our federal, state and local partners who helped bring him to justice.”

“Violence and drugs go hand and hand, which ruins communities and lives,” said Special Agent in Charge Daniel C. Comeaux of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) - Houston Division. “Together and through our combined efforts with our local partners, we will continue putting violent criminals who bring drugs and unrest to our communities behind bars.”

“I am proud of the work done by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) and our law enforcement partners in arresting this offender,” said SAPD Chief William McManus.  “SAPD remains committed to the safety of our residents and we will continue to ensure that dangerous individuals involved in criminal activity are off our streets.”

“Texas families deserve to live in peace in their communities, safe from the threats posed by violent street gangs,” said FBI San Antonio Division Special Agent in Charge Oliver E. Rich Jr. “This sentence is welcome news and sends a strong message to violent criminal enterprises that the FBI and its law enforcement partners will continue to aggressively pursue these offenders and bring them to justice.”

The DEA, SAPD and FBI investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Yuen is prosecuting the case.

This indictment resulted from an Texas Anti-Gang Center (TAG) investigation conducted by San Antonio TAG member agencies including the DEA, FBI, San Antonio Police Department’s Gang Unit, Bexar County Sheriff’s Department, Bexar County District Attorney’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Office of Inspector General, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
