Two Florida Men Arrested in Iredell on Felony Trafficking Charges

34-year-old Randy Diaz Fonseca of Miami, Florida and 25-year-old Luis Miguel Vazquez of Orlando, Florida have both been arrested by Iredell County Sheriff’s Officers on felony counts of trafficking marijuana by possession, trafficking marijuana by transport, possession of marijuana, and possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver marijuana, along with a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

They were arrested Tuesday (November 29) when Officers stopped a Toyota 4-Runner traveling south on Interstate 77 at mile marker 55 for violating a traffic law. Fonseca was the driver and Vazquez was a passenger. The men told Deputies they were traveling from Michigan to Florida.

Deputies searched the vehicle and reportedly found a large suitcase and a large bag in the trunk that contained over 40 pounds of high-grade marijuana. The street value of the marijuana was estimated at $378,876.

Fonseca and Vazquez were transported to the Iredell County Detention Center where bond for each was set at $100,000, secured. They will both appear in District Court on December 21.

Both men are being held on a federal detainer due to their immigration status.
