Law enforcers team up to tackle drug dealers

KODIAK — Following a major drug bust in early June, four locals were indicted on federal drug distribution and conspiracy charges in a US District Court on Tuesday. Alexander Ancheta, Christian Penamora, Joan Sison and Joseph Ramos were all indicted on charges of conspiring to sell more than 500 grams of methamphetamine between December and June.

The federal indictments are the result of a multi-month, multi-agency investigation that involved the undercover purchase of narcotics on a number of occasions over the course of several months. Court documents state that the drug activity centered around a residence on Thorsheim Street, where a search warrant uncovered hundreds of grams of methamphetamine and heroin and thousands of dollars in cash. More cash and drugs were found in vast quantities in a number of stash houses around town, including one on Hemlock Street, where over 600 grams of meth was purchased by an individual working with law enforcers during an undercover operation.
