San Juan, Puerto Rico - On Tuesday, a news release from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported that ICE Homeland Security Investigation special agents working jointly with Puerto Rico Police Department's (PRPD) Air and Marine Unit arrested Carlos Morales Davila, 39, aka, "Cano Navarro" or "Cano Gurabo," on Monday wanted in the state of Florida for federal drug trafficking charges.
Morales Davila was arrested by ICE HSI special agents after the vessel he was traveling from the neighboring island of Vieques to Puerto Rico was intercepted by PRPD marine enforcement units.
Upon inspection by PRPD officers, Morales Davila provided a form of identification that did not match his physical characteristics.
PRPD alerted ICE HSI agents who waited for Morales Davila ashore for a fingerprint check that later identified him as a suspect wanted in Florida for a four count sealed federal indictment that included drug trafficking.
Morales Davila had his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Camille Rive on Tuesday and was transferred to the Guaynabo, Puerto Rico Metropolitan Detention Center awaiting the outcome of his case and extradition to Florida.
Morales Davila has been linked to a drug trafficking organization in eastern Puerto Rico responsible for the importation of multi-kilograms of cocaine and several homicides, according to the ICE news release.
In an urelated federal drug bust in Puerto Rico, ICE HSI special agents working jointly with the PRPD seized 225 kilograms of cocaine on Tuesday from a residence in Humacao on the eastern coast of Puerto Rico with an estimated street value of $4.5 million.
During the execution of the search warrant, ICE special agents noted 205 bricks of a powdery white substance that tested positive for cocaine, as well as 10 small bags which later tested positive for marijuana during a field test. No arrests have been made in the case.
