3 Arrested In Black Tar Heroin Investigation

The Pecos Valley Drug Task Force says it recently arrested three people for trafficking in black tar heroin. After an initial investigation, drug agents obtained a search warrant for a home in the 200 block of South Fifth Street in Carlsbad. That search warrant was executed on August 2nd. Arrested during the raid were Gerald Ybarra, Ivan Fierro and Belinda Rubio. Agents say they believe Ybarra was selling the heroin out of his home. A news release from the task force says the drug activity in that area has continued to negatively affect the quality of life there. Agents will continue to aggressively investigate complaints they receive and more arrests in this case may be forthcoming, the release states.
