A federal grand jury indicted four people yesterday, including an Eastern Shore man, his wife and his brother, on conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Federal prosecutors said they are seeking to seize $1.5 million in assets from the group that may include two businesses in Maryland and Delaware.
The nine-count indictment levies drug and money-laundering charges against four Salisbury residents: Paul Apostolopoulos, 35; his wife, Wendy Apostolopoulos, 36; his brother, Dominick Apostolopoulos, 30; and Andres Morales, 37.
The defendants were arrested yesterday and appeared in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Only Wendy Apostolopoulos was released before trial; the others were ordered held until a detention hearing set for Monday.
