Cocaine Cowboy Mickey Munday Indicted In $1.6 Million Car Theft Ring
A former “Cocaine Cowboy” convicted of smuggling an estimated 10 tons of cocaine into Miami during the 1980s has been indicted.
This time Mickey Munday — who ran drugs for Pablo Escobar’s Medellin cartel — is one of eight men charged in a stolen car ring that netted the group $1.67 million, prosecutors said Thursday.
The eight are due before a federal judge on Friday and face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
Between 2008 and 2015, Munday and the seven others bought cars through straw buyers, purchased other vehicles from owners struggling to pay the loans on them and stole other ones, according to the indictment.
The group is also accused of shipping cars from Missouri to Miami, hid them from being repossessed and sold them off for below market values, prosecutors said.
One of the accused, David Wheat, wrote phony applications for new car titles for vehicles that they’d stolen, the indictment alleges.
