According to the investigation, the woman, surnamed Arrieta Badilla, 21, and the man, surnamed Samuels Jackson, 23, had been selling the drugs for the last two years.

As part of their strategy to avoid detection, they used courier or fast food delivery services for their businesses.  “The PCD officers carried out an investigation by which they determined that the narco structure was dedicated to the sale of drugs, specifically marijuana, and that this was sold hidden through different types of confectionery.
