Puerto Rican kingpin brought drugs even in submarines, witness says
Santo Domingo.- National Police spokesman Maximo Báez Wednesday revealed that Gian Enrique Rojas, charged with murdering on orders from Puerto Rican kingpin Jose Figueroa Agosto’s network, shipped drugs by “air, boats and even submarines.
“In one of the phones we found on Gian Enrique he could be explicitly heard asking where he wanted the merchandise, if above or below… It even came in submarines but for those it had to be more than 500 kilos because it was very expensive,” he said. “We were tipped off that the South Americans discussed the price of the drug and that it was above, below and on the surface.”
Báez, testifying for the prosecution in the trial against nine murder-for-hire defendants, also revealed that the killing of Figueroa’s lieutenant, Omar Antigua Polanco, was the break in the investigation into the execution style murder of Rubén Hayet Grove, right in the parking lot of his famous eatery, La Francesa.
