Pasco Drug Traffickers Caught
A Pasco County couple is caught in traffic. Unfortunately for them, its not the sort of traffic that will move when the light turns green.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PSCO), Ramon Aguilar-Hernandez, 39, and Damiana Alvarado, 38, of New Port Richey were arrested on May 14 with more than $70,000 in prescription pills that deputies believe were to be sold and distributed in Pasco County, possibly in Wesley Chapel.
The report says that the couple, which had been under investigation by PSCO for five months, was returning from a drug-run to south Florida, when they were pulled over in their silver Honda sedan on probably cause. After being taken into custody, deputies searched the vehicle and found 3,280 Oxycodone pills, estimated to be about 393 grams. The search also found 1,413 Aplrazolam pills, about 280 grams. The total find is estimated to be worth more than $70,000.
The two were each charged with trafficking in controlled substances and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute/manufacture/deliver.
