The Hendry County Sheriff's Office says 24 year old David Ramirez Jr. was arrested Friday after a narcotics investigator posed as a Postal worker and delivered
a package suspected of containing marijuana to a home on Caloosa Estates Drive, in North LaBelle. The Sheriff's Office says after a short period of time,
Narcotics Investigators witnessed a white Jeep driven by the Ramirez pull into the driveway of the home. Investigators witnessed Ramirez pick the package
up and take it inside the home. Approximately 15 minutes later Ramirez stepped outside the residence to speak with a guest who had arrived. Investigators
then approached the house and detained Ramirez in the home. At that time Sheriff's Investigators conducted a search of the home and located
approximately 17 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of $17,000.00, inside a red duffle bag.
Ramirez was taken into custody and transported to the Hendry County Jail. Ramirez is charged with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell and
Possession of Marijuana over 20 Grams. He is currently being held without bond.
