Probation and parole officers say they have arrested a major player from one of the New Mexico's heroin hot spots behind bars again.
The convicted drug dealer, Jose Marino Trujillo , is on probation for selling drugs.
Recently NM Probation and Parole officers got a tip Trujillo was at it again. They showed up to his home in Chimayo on Wednesday to find drugs and a lot more.
"It was amazing to see. You just see drugs flying everywhere, and none of these guys want to claim it. They didn't even want to claim the money," explained Probation and Parole Officer Allen Dominguez.
Officers found more than $40,000 hidden inside the home's dishwasher.
"They were all $100 bills warped in thousand dollar increments," said Probation and Parole Regional Manager Rose Bobchak. "We had to gather a large kitchen trash bag to put all this money in so we could take it away."
They also found $3,000 worth of drugs some of which in plain sight of Trujillo's 4-year-old son who was home during the bust.
Trujillo was arrested and booked into the Santa Fe County Jail. He faces possible drug trafficking and child abuse charges.
His son is staying with other family members.
Andrew Martinez, 29, was also arrested during the raid. He's charged with drug possession.
Authorities say this case should send a message to career criminals.
"We're trained to catch you," said Bobchak. "Watch what you're doing because we're going to make sure if you're not going to comply with conditions and take the opportunities that the parole board is going to give you, we're going to make sure that the community is safe."
