Not Your Ordinary Drug Bust
Florida police arrested two men on Wednesday after pulling over a speeding bus on a highway known as “Alligator Alley” and finding $126,000 in U.S. cash and more than $1 million worth of prescription HIV drugs in their stowed luggage.
The men, Oscar Omar Zabala from Miami and Juan Vasquez of New Jersey, are being held in county jail and have been charged with 20 counts of trafficking in contraband prescription drugs. Both men denied knowing each other and said that they planned on distributing the medications to their friends and family members living with HIV.
