Police have arrested a Gilbert man on drug-related charges in Apache Junction.

 

Jesus Gregorio Delgado Lerma, 21, was arrested by Apache Junction police on Aug. 8 and charged with possession of narcotics for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Lerma reportedly entered the United States illegally through the Nogales, Ariz., port of entry and made his way up Gilbert. 

 

The arrest was the result of an investigation conducted by Apache Junction police detectives assigned to the Community Response Enforcement Unit who were investigating the trafficking of narcotics into the Apache Junction area from various sources.

 

In a cooperative investigation with a search warrant executed along with Gilbert police at Lerma’s residence, authorities seized 1.5 pounds of heroin, oxycodone, marijuana, two vehicles and more than $30,000 in U.S. currency.

 

Lerma was being held at the Pinal County Detention Center in Florence. He faces multiple charges in both Pinal and Maricopa county jurisdictions.

 

The public is reminded that the charging of the criminal offenses is a process in the criminal justice system and all persons are presumed innocent until proven otherwise in the criminal courts.
