On Thursday, Luis Torres, 45, of Worcester was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine and one count of use of a communication facility to facilitate a drug felony.
In June 2022, Torres allegedly conspired with others to possess and distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine. He was previously convicted of drug trafficking and served more than a year in state prison.
Torres was initially arrested and charged on June 21, 2022 and has remained in custody since. He will appear in federal court in Boston at a later date.
