Edith Rodriguez Cardenas

A Texas truck driver and a California woman were found guilty on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, of trafficking $5.6 million worth of drugs through Bucks County. 

Christian Ochoa, 29, of Laredo, Texas, and Edith Tomasa Rodriguez Cardenas, 28, of Huntington Park, California, were both sentenced to state prison; Ochoa to 7 ½ to 15 years and Rodriguez Cardenas to eight to 16 years. 

Ochoa and Rodriguez Cardenas were arrested on Jan. 29, 2021, after an observant Bedminster Township patrol officer spotted Ochoa driving a Jeep Wrangler swerving in his lane. 

That sparked an investigation by the Bedminster Township Police Department and the Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force, who seized one kilogram of eight kilograms of fentanyl, one kilogram of heroin and one kilogram of cocaine from the Jeep.
