2 Arizona men convicted in drug-trafficking case

PHOENIX — Authorities said two men have been convicted on federal drug-
trafficking charges in Arizona.

Federal prosecutors said 45-year-old Robert Gene White of Chandler and
61-year-old Nadunt Chibeast of Tempe were found guilty of conspiracy to possess
with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine plus conspiracy to commit money
laundering.

Both men are scheduled to be sentenced on July 8.

Authorities said a trafficking organization received marijuana from Mexico,
repackaged it into parcels and shipped it through a courier service that
employed White as a driver.

White was accused of delivering up to 300 pounds of marijuana weekly to people
in New York, Ohio. He was accused of receiving $50 for each pound of marijuana that
went through his truck.

Prosecutors said Chibeast transferred money to the drug traffickers’ bank
accounts.
