BOISE – Rodrigo Ramirez, 22, and Irwin Camacho, 20, both of Phoenix, Arizona, were arrested last night in Canyon County after being found in possession of over five pounds of black tar heroin, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.  Ramirez and Camacho were arraigned on a complaint this afternoon in federal court, which charged them with possession with intent to distribute 1000 grams or more of heroin. 

The charge of possessing with intent to distribute 1000 grams or more of heroin is punishable by at least ten years in prison and not more than life, a maximum fine of $10,000,000, and at least five years of supervised release.

The case is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Special Investigations Unit of the Nampa City Police Department

A complaint is a means of charging a person with criminal activity.  It is not evidence.  The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
