Suspects from Sacramento area arrested in major Idaho drug bust

SACRAMENTO - As many as nine people from the Sacramento region have been named in a federal indictment connected to a massive prescription drug bust in Idaho.

Federal agents arrested Coral Wilson of Sacramento and Ajellon Dedaux of Rancho Cordova. The other seven people named in the were not arrested when this story posted.

Agents believe Wilson, Dedaux and the seven others were supplying prescription pain killer oxycodone to a gang in Idaho as well as heroin and cocaine.

Agents searched a Sacramento home in the 8900 block of Rosetta Circle and then an apartment complex in Rancho Cordova for documents, phone records and paraphernalia to connect the suspects to the Idaho drug ring.

In one instance, a stuffed teddy bear sent to Boise, Idaho was "cut open and inside the bear were 200 oxycodone 30 mg pills," the indictment said.

In March, 11 other people were arrested in Idaho in connection to the drug ring. The indictment said suspects conspired and distributed heroin and oxycodone since 2012.

The investigation involved 160,000 oxycodone pills, valued at about $6 million. The US Attorney's Office said this was the largest prescription drug bust in Idaho history.
