October 25, 1990|From McClatchy News Service

SACRAMENTO — An Orange County man pleaded guilty Wednesday to helping former South Lake Tahoe Mayor Terry A. Trupp launder drug money during an elaborate undercover probe.

Richard D. Brokhausen, 42, admitted that he carried $250,000 to the Caribbean island of Antigua on Trupp's behalf in December, 1988, without filing a disclosure report with the U.S. Customs Service.

Brokhausen and Trupp were among those charged in a 20-month undercover operation--code-named Deep Snow--into cocaine trafficking and money laundering in the Lake Tahoe area.

Brokhausen was the last of 13 defendants to either plead guilty or be convicted in the case in U.S. District Court in Sacramento.
