Boise Police Arrest Seven On Drug Trafficking Charges
Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Boise Police say they have arrested seven people since December 31. All have believed to be connected to a major drug trafficking organization.
During the course of the investigation, officers have seized more than six pounds of methamphetamine brought into Idaho from Southern California.
Officers say two of the suspects, Celilio Alba Ponce and Daniel Dominiguez would drive the meth into Idaho from Southern California. Suspects Allen, Abramson, Langley, Ponte and Leavell are accused of distributing the meth once it arrived here.
When officers arrested Ponce and Dominiguez Wednesday, they were in possession of approximately five pounds of methamphetamine found in their vehicle. Officers say during the course of the nine-month investigation, they became aware of up to 50 pounds of meth brought into Idaho connected to the above suspects.
“We believe this group is responsible for a good percentage of the methamphetamine coming into the Boise area,” said Lt. P.D. Burch of the Boise Police Narcotics Unit. “This drug creates addiction and crime and takes a huge toll on families and this community. This investigation was a cooperative effort and aimed at those bringing this drug into our state.”
Those arrested were identified as Daniel A. Dominiguez, 21, of Norco California. Randy Allen, 31 of Boise, Trina R. Abramson, 33 of Boise, Douglas R. Langley, 29 of Boise, Devin Ponte, 27 of Boise and Robert Leavell, 47 of Boise.
