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.

“This, making use of courier services or fast food delivery services, not only to facilitate the commercialization and distribution of the illicit drug, but also to avoid being detected or becoming an object of investigation by the authorities of the PCD.

“The PCD confirmed that those investigated were in charge of preparing, cooking, promoting and selling the confectionery with the apparent marijuana, for which they used their house located in Pozos de Santa Ana and which became the point to store, prepare and dispense the drug,” the MSP explained in a press release.
