Eugenio Montoya-Sanchez is the brother of Diego Montoya-Sanchez, one of the most powerful Colombian drug traffickers. Eugenio Montoya-Sanchez and his brother are both prominent members of the North Valle Cartel, which is responsible for an estimated 60-80 percent of the cocaine reaching the U.S. since 1998. Eugenio Montoya-Sanchez reportedly managed the family assets and was the principal money launderer for Diego Montoya-Sanchez. Eugenio Montoya-Sanchez was originally indicted in the Southern District of Florida in September of 2003 for conspiracy to import cocaine and money laundering. The 2003 indictment was superseded in January 2004 and April 8, 2005 with new indictments to add co-conspirators to the original indictment.
