Man called the biggest heroin dealer in Columbus busted by police
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
The man accused of bringing multiple kilos of heroin to Columbus on a regular basis is expected in court this week.
Ramon Montalvo, who's also known as "Mole Face," has been indicted on a dozen charges from felony drug trafficking to running a criminal enterprise.
Prosecutors tell ABC 6/FOX 28 that he nor his members are U.S. citizens and only came to Columbus to sell drugs. They said the crew smuggles them from Nayarit, Mexico and distributes them here, Illinois, North and South Carolina and Florida.
Court records indicate a confidential source told police Montalvo is "the biggest heroin dealer in Columbus" this summer. Records indicate officers kept Montalvo's Canal Winchester home under surveillance since then and up until they search his home and a half dozen others this month.
Prosecutors say heroin, cocaine, $50,000 in cash, four cars and three guns were seized. Montalvo and four suspected members of the "Ramon Montalvo Drug Trafficking Organization" were arrested.
"Whenever you can get a multi kilo distribution group in jail and out of business, it's a great accomplishment, " said Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien.
