4 with ties to Colorado pot accused of laundering

DENVER (AP) - Four men with ties to last year's raids of Colorado medical marijuana businesses have been indicted for money laundering and other crimes.

The charges against 48-eight-year-old David Furtado, a Denver lawyer and dispensary owner, and another dispensary owner, 28-year-old Luis Uribe, were revealed during a hearing in federal court on Monday. Uribe's older brother, Gerardo, was also indicted but authorities haven't been able to find him.

The arrests were made Friday but federal prosecutors didn't release any details then.

Hector Diaz, a Colombian man arrested on a weapons charge during last year's raids, has also been charged in the case.

Court filings related to his case describe both Uribe and Gerardo Furtado as "targets in a long-term investigation into marijuana distribution, money laundering and other offenses."
