According to federal prosecutors, the suspect is an integral part of a drug trafficking network that has ties to Colombia. Authorities began to investigate the 52-year-old suspect after learning about his alleged involvement with the criminal organization.

Officials with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) conducted surveillance outside the suspect’s apartment in Newark NJ and allegedly saw him selling drugs.
