U.S. Navy SEAL Smuggled 10 Kilos Of Cocaine Into Miami, Report

BuzzFeed.com is reporting that a U.S. Navy SEAL, who worked on counter-narcotics missions, pleaded guilty to drug conspiracy to import cocaine into the U.S. and is in custody in Miami awaiting sentencing.

The report says Angel Martinez-Ramos and his wife Bibiana Marcela Lopez-Correa were trying to smuggle more than 22 pounds of cocaine, with a street value of roughly $350,000, from Aruba.

Martinez-Ramos was questioned by border patrol officers on Christmas Eve, the documents say, when he got off a flight from Aruba at Miami International Airport. He told officers he was traveling alone and was carrying a Travelpro suitcase.

However, officers identified and questioned his wife Bibiana Marcela Lopez-Correa, who was also on board, court records show. She, too, told officers she was flying by herself and said she was going to meet her husband ‘David’ – but confirmed Martinez-Ramos was actually her husband when asked.

Ten kilos of cocaine were found in a Totto carry-on suitcase left behind on the plane that Lopez-Carrea said belonged to her husband, packed as ‘brick-shaped objects.’ The drugs’ street value is worth up to $350,000, according to Buzzfeed, and were allegedly given to Martinez-Ramos at the Aruba airport bathroom.
