Pot money laundering suspect to appear in court

DENVER — The last of four men accused of laundering money from Colombia to buy a marijuana grow house in Denver is asking to be released on bond.

Denver dispensary operator Gerardo Uribe is scheduled to appear in federal court Monday morning.

A judge last week granted bail to his brother Luis Uribe and Denver attorney David Furtado. Their dispensaries were among targets of November raids on Colorado medical marijuana businesses.

Hector Diaz, a Colombian man arrested during the raids, is also charged and is free on bond.

Prosecutors allege that Furtado and Diaz set up a shell metals company. The group allegedly worked to transfer money from a Colombian bank to an account for the metal company, eventually using the money to buy a building to grow and distribute marijuana.
