Federal drug agents recently arrested two people attempting to smuggle nearly five pounds of heroin into Alaska stuffed inside the engine of a Chevy Tahoe.
Federal documents filed Wednesday charge Jose Ernesto Rivas-Ortiz and Alfred Carranza with possession with intent to distribute heroin. The pair are accused of shipping a 2008 Chevy Tahoe in a container to Anchorage, Alaska from Thermal, California, a known hub for drug distribution in the U.S., reports KTUU.
Alarms - Shipping - Company - Status - SUV
Rivas-Ortiz reportedly set off alarms after repeatedly calling the shipping company to check on the status of the SUV. After the container arrived April 7 agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration searched the vehicle, discovering 10 bundles of heroin containing roughly 2,236 grams of the substance in a taped package.
Instead of seizing the drugs on the spot, agents put a tracking device on the Chevy Tahoe and allowed Rivas-Ortiz and Carranza to pick up the SUV. Rivas-Ortiz and Carranza opened the engine compartment after driving around the area conducting “counter-surveillance” measures, at which point agents descended on the scene.
