Two men from Mexico charged in federal court after police seized more than 200 pounds of cocaine have been ordered held without bond.

Antonio Navarro-Gaytan, 54, and Alejandro Cota-Luna, 28, appeared before a magistrate Wednesday. They have been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine.

“This is one of the largest cocaine seizures in Ohio in the past decade. Disrupting the flow of illegal drugs into our communities, and stopping the distribution of those drugs continues to be DEA and our partners’ top priority. A seizure of cocaine this large, should also serve as a reminder that cocaine is dangerous and deadly, and continues to be a major drug of abuse in our society,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Timothy J. Plancon said.

“I am extremely proud of this task force, specifically the work of our assigned deputy,” said Cuyahoga County Sheriff Clifford Pinkney.
