Two Miami businessmen will spend time in prison for exporting to Mexico

The owners of a Miami trucking company were sentenced to 36 months and 18 months in prison for conspiring to export Mayan motors to Mexico.

The Federal Attorney for the Southern District of Florida announced that Carlos Orlando Ledesma, 57, received a 36-month sentence and Nadia Esperanza Ledesma, 46, will serve 18 months in prison.

District Judge Robert N. Scola Jr. He also ordered the defendants to forfeit the profits they each received in the export operation and to pay the victims $420,668.47.

Two other defendants in the case, Roberto Marrero Cisneros, 66, of Miami, and Osmani Valdivia Pérez, 56, of Lehigh Acres, were sentenced to 60 months in prison for their roles in the conspiracy on May 19.

Nadia Ledesma is the president of the Corp. Netcycle Trading, a transportation company in Miami, and Carlos Ledesma is the warehouse manager, according to prosecutors.

From 2015 to 2018, Carlos and Nadia Ledesma received almost 600 Mayan motors for export to Mexico. The cost of the stolen guns exceeded $11 million, according to authorities.

It has turned dozens of people into stealth machines at Netcycle. Motors had seen damage from burglaries, and wires and lines were separated instead of properly disconnected. The individuals delivered the stolen devices in non-commercial vehicles without sales receipts or other documents, the prosecutor’s office said.

Marrero Cisneros created fake serial number stickers to put on most of the hijacked cars, while Nadia and Carlos Ledesma, and their co-conspirators, created fake bills of sale and submitted false export information.

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office reported that many of the stolen devices were sent to Tomás Vale Valdivia, a co-conspirator who was in Mexico.

Later, on January 28, 2020, Vale Valdivia was sentenced to 57 months for alien smuggling, in a separate case before US District Judge Kathleen M. Williams.

Authorities identified Vale Valdivia as the nephew of defendant Osmani Valdivia Pérez. Valdivia Pérez made many financial payments to the conspirators in this case on behalf of Vale Valdivia.

The cash payments included payments to Netcycle for export fees for stolen Mayan motors, payments to Marrero Cisneros for numbers and serial fictitious payments to people who stole Mayan motors, prosecutors said.
