A federal SWAT team this week raided a sprawling east Texas property belonging to a family accused of selling drugs, firearms, prostitutes and fake identification documents.

Thirty-year-old Victor Hernandez Hernandez faces a federal charge of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamines. His public defender says the charges could change after a federal grand jury meets in about two weeks.

Hernandez was arrested early Wednesday morning on his family's property near Henderson, about 120 miles east of Dallas.

The FBI was assisted by the Rusk County Sheriff's Office, which initiated the investigation.

Authorities say Hernandez smuggled drugs from Mexico and weapons into Mexico.
