Arizona Man Convicted Of Conspiracy To Distribute Fentanyl, Heroin And Cocaine

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) A federal jury in Lexington found an Arizona man guilty of conspiracy to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine, more than 400 grams of fentanyl and one kilogram of heroin.

Hector Salas Jr. was convicted on Friday after a three- day trial, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. The jury also found Salas guilty of possession with the intent to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.

On May 2017, Salas was stopped by Lexington Police, on Versailles Road, in a vehicle with a Tennessee license plate, according to the press release. The investigation ultimately revealed that the vehicle had come from Phoenix and the trailer towed behind it contained 5.9 kilograms of cocaine, with a street value of over $410,000. Further investigation also resulted in the seizure of over 700 grams of fentanyl and over a kilogram of heroin from a residence in Lexington. The total street value of all the drugs exceeded $1,000,000. Law enforcement agencies also seized over $580,000 in proceeds from the distribution of the drugs.

The sentencing hearing is currently scheduled for May 11, 2018
