Three Cuban Nationals Among 22 Arrested in Multi-County Drug Ring

BROOKSVILLE – The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is reporting the arrest of three Cuban Nationals, as part of ongoing multi-agencies investigation into a Cuban drug trafficking organization called “Hydro Hustlers.”

According to officials, Vice and Narcotics Detectives executed a search warrant at 25318 Ash street this morning, after a year-long investigation that began in Hillsborough County.

Detectives discovered a sophisticated marijuana grow operation inside the residence, where they confiscated 50 plants – totaling 85 pounds of marijuana.

Members of Withlacoochee River Electric responded to the scene and were able to safely disconnect the wires that were utilized for the power diversion.

The following three suspects were taken into custody and found to be connected to the Cuban Drug Trafficking Organization.

29-year-old Yariel Gomez Ortega, 38-year-old Dynleki Santana, and 20-year-old Elianys Roque Cabrera are all charged with Manufacturing Marijuana among other related charges. Each is currently held on a $10,000 bond in the Hernando County Jail.

It is not known if U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will join the investigation or place additional holds on those charged.

The investigation continues into the Hydro Hustlers and additional arrests are expected.

  • SMH, First off cubans have been coming to this country for many many years now. My grandparents came from the island worked their asses off EVERY day, Paid American Taxes and not once lived off welfare or any state assistance. We don’t own grow ops.. We don’t do drugs… We simply came here for a better life.. I am AMERICAN but in my viens runs cuban blood. This Cuban Drug Trafficking bull crap really could have been left out of this article.. This is Just making the white folk around here even more racist than what they already are.

    And for you morons that think your sweet Trump is gonna solve this.. Good luck! Once Cubans touch american soil we are of legal status.. And if you build a wall I hope you build that shit in the middle of the Florida straight otherwise there is really no keeping us out!

    • I don’t feel racists to all Cubans ! I don’t want any drug dealers to remain in the US. Obama changed wet foot dry foot Cubans are no longer under that protection.

  • Facepalm how are you going to judge people by their comments everybody has an opinion be it good or bad. What makes me laugh is your comment about to get a life or we should kill ourselves. Don’t you think it’s abit negative from you as well? In fact it maybe considered abit being cyberbulling.

  • Jack= the term mongoloids == the proper word is Downs Syndrome and they are very SPECIAL people. They can be productive citizens. That’s like making fun of a man with no legs, I know about downs syndrome as I have a nephew with Downs he works, lives in a facility with other people like himself and is a happy loving human being, So stuff that remark where the sun don’t shine, you are ignorant! As for the Marijuana more people die from DRUGS METH, other potent drugs, and ALCOHOL!!As far as the Cuban people, there are criminals in every culture, so keep that in mind! Bad people come in all colors as well as ignorant ones!, When you put that BOOZE down your throat and drive, or beat your spouse or children, that makes you as bad as any of these people in this article . Yeah yeah alcohol is legal, well maybe it shouldn’t be anymore!!.Let me be on the road with some drunk or one who has smoked Marijuana , I will take the smoker! Nothin worse that a DRUNK!! Silly willy that was darned rude towards Tom, he is entitled to his opinion, as we all are. And NO I don’t smoke it, nor do I drink!! Go ahead give me hell, I do not care!, Tom thank your good friend for me for his service to this once great country!!!

  • Of course we know cannabis isnt really a issue. The issue is where the money was going and what it was being used for ie organized crime, theft of electrical service, etc. Why it needs to be legal. Tax it and regulate it. Take the profits out of the hands of criminal gangs. Yeah Id have to agree with some of these people commenting. The meth and pill abuse is out of hand. Its flooding into this county at an alarming rate and the meth is being cooked daily in multiple homes. That stuff is toxic as it gets.

    Saturday, 23 April 2016, 5:48 pm
  • Tom, see all the idiots you are attracting?(Roger) And also,What about the other 19? Who cares who you are “friends” with? It means NOTHING. The Meth trafficking in this county would be more news worthy. It is,by far more dangerous than weed you know.

    • Roger, Obama wants to let Cubans in the country? Are you getting your news from that varmint network? I suggest you search the meaning of “diplomatic relations” also search “obamaphone” and see what president started the program.

      Sunday, 24 April 2016, 8:10 am
  • So,what about the other 19 suspects? Where are they from? Why single out Cubans and nobody else? And to that other clown, how is a wall going to keep boats out?

  • Also, thanking “O-bozo”? You are such a stereotypically ignorant person. I realize that it’s worth nothing to even try to speak to any of you mongoloids, but COME ON. This forum is littered by people who never grew past a ten-year-old’s understanding of the world and our political system.

  • If ever anyone is curious about why the young people in HCO/PCO are failing/getting arrested, read the level if ignorance in these comment threads. It is hard for me to believe that people like these commenters actually exist.

    Legal/illegal they’re human beings. Sure, deport/prosecute. But calling for execution? Why not start with yourself?

    Saturday, 23 April 2016, 10:55 am
  • It really makes me laugh, all you folks who freak out over weed…GET OVER IT! This great country of ours is finally coming around to LEGALIZING IT. Come to terms with that. I’d love to take a poll and ask just how many of you marijuana haters are consumers of alcohol…the legal inhabitant thats responsible for thousands of innocents dying each year. 20 grams or less in Tampa…can’t wait till that law travels 60 miles our way ?
