WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have charged 14 people in an alleged cocaine smuggling ring in Wichita.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a release Thursday that the 63-count indictment alleges that the drug trafficking organization was active in Wichita from October 2010 until this month.

The indictment also accuses 30-year-old Juvenal Fernandez Jr., of Wichita, of conspiring with his father, 56-year-old Juvenal G. Fernandez, also of Wichita, to launder about $174,000 in drug proceeds by buying real estate.

An attorney listed on the charging documents for Juvenal Fernandez Jr. did not immediately return a call seeking comment. An attorney was not listed for the elder Fernandez.

The others charged in the indictment are accused of possessing or distributing cocaine. They are listed as residents of Wichita and Amarillo, Texas.
