Top Dominican Narc Target of Murder Plot

SANTO DOMINGO – The Dominican Republic’s DNCD anti-drug agency confirmed Monday that it uncovered a plan to assassinate its chief, Maj.-Gen. Rolando Rosado Mateo.

The alleged head of the aborted plan is Ramon del Rosario Puente, whom local authorities accuse of supplying cocaine to fugitive Puerto Rican drug trafficker Jose Figueroa Agosto.

The plan also had as its objective sparking a riot in the prison in the eastern city of Higuey and killing six inmates linked to drug trafficking.

The six men, jailed awaiting trial, were involved in a drug shipment that arrived in the country on board an airplane with Venezuelan registration that was abandoned at Los Jobos, near Higuey.

Del Rosario Puente is accused of being the leader of a drug trafficking network broken up some time ago in the eastern part of the Caribbean country, the DNCD said in a communique.

The band received cocaine and then transferred it to Figueroa Agosto, who – along with Dominican Sebeida Felix Morel, also a fugitive – “headed one of the (networks that is the subject of one of) the broadest investigations into money laundering and drug trafficking” in the Dominican Republic, the DNCD said.
