The arrest happened on Tuesday afternoon when South Highway Patrol officers pulled over a vehicle suspected of transporting drugs near 12th Street and Kiwanis Avenue.

After searching the car, police found 62 pounds of cocaine and a handgun inside. There hasn't been that much snow in Sioux Falls since last January!

According to Dakota News Now, the two suspects, 34-year-old Lennin Arturo Robles Parra and 29-year-old Isaias Lorenso Santos were arrested and charged with Possession of Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Controlled Substances, Possession of Paraphernalia, and Possession of a Firearm While Committing a Felony.

Tuesday's drug bust can be traced back to the work first started by the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force in 2020. Police began to ramp up their investigation into cocaine distribution in the city at that time.

Authorities told Dakota News Now, the investigation is still ongoing and that no further information regarding Tuesday's arrest would be released at this time.
