Law enforcement officers observed De Jesus Osornio, who had parked his tractor-trailer on Passaic Street in Newark, enter a white Mazda before returning to the tractor-trailer with a weighted-down bag. Around the same time, law enforcement officers observed Hernandez Sepulveda and Figueroa Santana arrive in a black Mitsubishi.

Law enforcement officers observed Hernandez Sepulveda approach the tractor-trailer and walk back to the Mitsubishi with a bag, which Hernandez Sepulveda placed in the back of the Mitsubishi. After approaching and apprehending the defendants, law enforcement officers searched the bag and found 10 kilograms of cocaine and found an additional 20 kilograms of cocaine and a large sum of cash in the tractor-trailer.

NJ.com reports: De Jesus Osornio didn’t surrender easily as he refused orders to exit the tractor-trailer, barricaded himself inside and closed the cabin curtains so DEA agents couldn’t see inside, according to court documents. Eventually, agents forced their way in and arrested him.
