Two illegal aliens, one living in New York, and one living in North Carolina were arrested and charged with a litany of drug-related crimes after cops busted them with 81.4 pounds of cocaine.
“Edis Leonidas Herrera Mejia, 52, of New York, and Octavio Lopez Martinez, 53, of Raleigh, were charged with conspiring to sell, deliver and traffic in cocaine. They were arrested Sunday night in southeast Raleigh,” according to The Observer.
The report said that the Wake County Sheriff’s Office had surveillance on a tractor trailer moving from California to North Carolina before they made the bust. One of the illegals was transporting the drugs, while the other was supposed to receive the shipment, likely to distribute it.
That amount of cocaine has a street value of somewhere around $15 million.
“Mejia was also charged with trafficking in cocaine, according to his arrest warrants,” the report said. “Each man was being held Monday on a $5 million bond, court records show.”
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement is not able to place a detainer on the pair due to Wake County, North Carolina’s sanctuary policy.

Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
