Three charged in Hockley County meth case

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock federal court unsealed an indictment Tuesday in the criminal case against Florentino Corrales, 37, of Levelland, Johnny Lee Kendrick, 44, of Lubbock and Myndi Marie Jewell, 33, of Lubbock.  The three are accused of dealing meth-amphetamines in Hockley County.  The charges include Conspiracy to Distribute and Possess with Intent to Distribute 500 Grams or More of Methamphetamine.  

Official records say if convicted, they face up to life in prison. Federal prosecutors have asked permission to keep Corrales and Jewell locked up until their trial date, citing a number of reasons including "safety of any other person and the community."  As of Tuesday evening no such request was on record for Kendrick. 

The three were indicted Sept. 14th by a Lubbock grand jury.
