From staff reportsOctober 17, 2012 

— Three men from Durham have been charged with trafficking with each other in cocaine and with having 400 grams of the drug.

Miguel Tinajero Martinez, 57, and Vinicio Pesero-Martinez, 42, were arrested Tuesday afternoon on Wake Forest Road. Manuel Luviano-Sanchez, 43, was arrested Tuesday night at Raleigh police headquarters, according to police reports. Luviano-Sanchez also was charged with failing to appear in court on an earlier charge.

The three men were held on $350,000 bond each and on a detainer request so that federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials can check their legal status for being in the country. All three men are Mexican natives, according to that paperwork.

Records list Martinez as living at 1206 Gilbert St. in Durham, Pesero-Martinez at 304 Sunbern St., Apt. 7, and Luviano-Sanchez at 304 Holloway St., Apt. 7.
