Trevor Sparks & Perez Martinez Left After December 5

Authorities have stated that Trevor S.

As of Tuesday, the FBI stated that there was no evidence to suggest that Sparks and Perez-Martinez were travelling together.

In November, a federal jury found Sparks guilty of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, participation in a money-laundering scheme, and two felonies linked to unlawful possession of firearms. Sparks was also found guilty of two crimes related to illegal possession of firearms. He was accused of running a methamphetamine business that had a net worth of at least $4.1 million and was at one point responsible for the trafficking of one kilogramme of meth every day in Kansas City, St. Joseph, and St. Louis.

Perez-Martinez entered a guilty plea in July, admitting that she was a participant in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and launder money. He was suspected of being in charge of a large-scale meth production operation in the metropolitan area of Kansas City.
