Judge Frees Meade Couple In Money Laundering Case

KSCB News - June 18, 2015 8:09 am

A federal judge has freed pending trial a couple accused of laundering millions of dollars for a Mexican cartel drug at a small Kansas bank.

Court filings in U.S. District Court in Kansas on Wednesday show George and Agatha Enns of Meade, Kansas, have been released from jail on secured bonds of $100,000 each.

An indictment alleges that between 2011 and 2014, the couple deposited more than $6.8 million into their account at Plains State Bank.

The government contended during a detention hearing last week the couple is hiding assets that they could use to flee.

But a defense attorney told the court that if it weren’t for their 10 family members the couple wouldn’t even have had the money to retain legal counsel.
