BUSTED: Illegal Alien Caught with $400k Worth of Cocaine in North Carolina

Another preventable crime.

An illegal alien was caught in Iredale County, North Carolina Friday with nine pounds of cocaine.

“Eyian Valenti Robotham, 53, was arrested after deputies noticed discrepancies in the information he provided during the traffic stop near mile marker 65,” said WBTV.

Robotham, who was living in Atlanta, was stopped on I-77 for a traffic violation while reportedly transporting the drugs to Alabama. When police searched his vehicle, they found “four kilogram-sized packages with 8.8 pounds of cocaine inside of them.” The drugs have a street value of $400,000.

Further investigation found that Robotham is living in the United States illegally. The Department of Homeland Security placed a detainer on him, which means he will likely face deportation proceedings once his criminal matter is resolved.

“Robotham has been charged with felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by possession, felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by transportation and felony maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances,” the report said.

Police busted the illegal alien during a time of hotly contested debate in Washington, D.C. over border security. So far, Democrats and Republicans alike have blocked President Donald J. Trump’s border security agenda.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.
