The complaint details 10 distinct transactions involving fentanyl, marijuana, and methamphetamine. Those purchases involved video or audio recordings, but the most significant development might have come from last October.

A former partner of Jimenez-Sosa reached out to the authorities, informing them about a drug shipment at her residence. The woman mentioned that Jimenez-Sosa inquired about receiving the shipment, which she believed to be clothing, at her residence. Upon realizing the nature of the substances, she adamantly declined to give them back to him. That, the woman said, led to Jimenez-Sosa threatening her and her children.

During this period, an informant captured audio of Jimenez-Sosa talking about the incident, mentioning that it cost him $5,000. He brought up the woman’s threats to hand over the drugs to the authorities, but doubted she would actually do it.
