Two men have been arrested and charged with importing more than 10 pounds of cocaine from Costa Rica to Norfolk, VA. The Norfolk branch of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been increasing pressure on international drug dealers, working to shut down the drug corridors that have been piping in drugs from countries such as Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico.
The latest dug arrests stem from a recent undercover investigation. Glen Stephen Dellibovi and Gerard Enriquez were arrested after arranging for and receiving a 5-kg shipment of cocaine. The suspects fell victim to an undercover sting operation that centered on the work of an undercover DEA agent.
The agent posed as an employee at the Norfolk International Airport. Meeting with the men at a Hampton Hooters restaurant, the suspects were caught on video and audio tape, making the final arrangements for the drug delivery. The agent traveled to Costa Rica with Dellibovi where he was given 5 kilos of cocaine. The agent then delivered the package back to Dellibovi while Enriquez brought $30,000 to the agent as payment for his services.The suspects are currently in jail, awaiting their U.S. District Court bond hearing.
