Documents filed in the case involving Yona Mayor Jesse Blas not only confirm the identity of the FBI’s confidential informant but also provides insight into the government’s case.
The FBI confidential informant who posed as a drug trafficker and purchased a United States Postal Service cluster box unit from Yona Mayor Jesse Blas has been officially identified by name in court documents filed by the U.S. Attorney General.
The document states that Brenda Kinian will be called as a witness at trial, in accordance with the plea agreement Kinian signed convicting her of extortion.
With trial anticipated, the government, in their trial brief, stated that Kinian is one of 10 witnesses to be called to the stand. Photographs, as well as video and audio recordings, have also been turned in as evidence.
Court documents state that Blas told his former girlfriend, Vickilyn Teregeyo, that he used cluster box units to receive narcotics and provided her with a key to conduct the illegal activities.
She will also be testifying as a government witness as part of a cooperation agreement.
The defense, meanwhile, argued in opposition to a motion filed by the government that their reliance on Teregeyo is “troubling,” saying that her claims of being a victim of violence were made a year after the events transpired and only after being questioned by the government.
The defense also argued that Teregeyo “is a hardened criminal lacking credibility, unafraid to be the aggressor and obviously holding a position of significance in the drug trafficking community.”
Trial is set to begin on Feb. 4.
