The driver, identified as 40-year-old Edgar Monge, was known to be in violation of his probation. Monge is currently on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for his 2019 conviction for sales of a controlled substance.

During the search of Monge’s vehicle, Detectives discovered a backpack in the back seat of the car which contained a large amount of methamphetamine. Detectives discovered a hidden compartment between the back seat and the frame of the car.

Inside that compartment they found a locked pouch which contained a large amount of fentanyl. During the search, investigators also found counterfeit Oxycodone M-30 pills, as well as heroin and drug paraphernalia indicating the sale of narcotics.

The estimated worth of the narcotics is approximately $11,000. Additionally, Detectives located more than $2,000 in cash.
Monge was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, transporting/selling a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance for sale. Monge posted bail on his probation violation and was released on his fresh narcotic charges pursuant to the Statewide Emergency Bail Schedule.”
