The Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) and representatives of the Justice Department arrested another person tied to the Cibao Cartel, an international network recently dismantled and whose main members exported more than 1,000 kilos of cocaine over the last 11 months from the Dominican Republic to the United States.
According to press reports, the person arrested, whose name was not revealed, was interrogated for several hours by the prosecutor of the Samana Judicial District, Juan Medina de los Santos.
The accusation points out that the cartel trafficked cocaine that came from Mexico and Colombia, using the Dominican Republic as the bridge for later sending it to Florida and other destinations in the United States.
The DNCD is deepening the investigation in Puerto Plata, Santiago, Samana and other important cities of the country´s northern region trying to arrest other persons implicated in the criminal organization.
