On 6-12-13, the Ventura County Interagency Pharmaceutical Crimes Unit concluded a two week investigation of a prescription drug / cocaine dealer in the city of Camarillo. Information was received towards the end of May, 2013, that Ojai resident Alexander Juarez was dealing drugs in the city of Camarillo. An investigation was initiated and ultimately resulted in the seizure of about 25 dosage units of Suboxone (Buprenorphine) and 33 grams of cocaine.


Suboxone is an opiate medication that is typically used to treat heroin and / or opiate addiction in much the same way Methadone is. It is also abused for its euphoric affects that are typical of other opiate type drugs.


Three other individuals were arrested in connection to this case. Two adults were arrested for conspiracy to deal drugs with Juarez and possession of cocaine. One adult was arrested for buying Suboxone from Juarez.  Those three subjects were arrested and were released pending further court proceedings. Juarez was booked into custody at the Ventura County Main Jail in lieu of $110,000 bail. He is out of custody on bail and is awaiting further court proceedings.


The Ventura County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit assisted on this investigation.
