NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An alleged major drug trafficker in the Bronx has been indicted.
As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported, Juan Rojas, 30, was home with his girlfriend Sept. 26 when agents arrived at his Fieldston apartment, next to the elite prep school Horace Mann. Authorities said they seized more than 68 pounds of cocaine with a street value of more than $1 million. Investigators also found $1.6 million in cash and two loaded semi-automatic pistols stashed under a bed, law enforcement officials said.
Investigators believe Rojas each month was trafficking about 50 kilos of cocaine — a street value of about $50,000.
