Phoenix man faces drug charges after federal agents find 150K blue pills at home
PHOENIX – Federal authorities charged a Phoenix man with drug offenses after they said they found 150,000 pills believed to be fentanyl in his apartment.
Jesus Osvaldo Aguilar Rosas, 20, was arrested Tuesday, the Offices of the United States Attorneys in Arizona said in a press release.
The criminal complaint filed against Rosas listed four counts of possession of controlled substances for distribution of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin, besides the blue pills.
Drug Enforcement Administration agents watching Rosas the day of his arrest said he had been carrying a gun and a bag during what appeared to be a drug deal.
When agents later searched his apartment, they found more drugs, $30,000 in cash and another weapon.
The Phoenix office of the DEA is handling the investigation. The U.S. Attorneys’ Phoenix office is leading the prosecution.
