Drug trafficker’s seized gas station fetches RD$103M, buys pickup trucks

Santo Domingo.- Justice minister Radhamés Jiménez today handed the keys to 35 twin cabin pickup trucks to each of the country’s DAs, for those offices to use on investigations.

The vehicles were bought with the money from the sale of the Texaco gas station Independencia avenue, seized from the convicted drug Quirino Paulino, currently prison in the United States, and whose family was reportedly placed in that country’s witness protection program.

He said the vehicles cost 30 million, from the RD$103 million paid for the station, and the rest of the money will be used to improve the prisons system.
